Severity: important

*** Please type your report below this line ***
Hi all,
 Had done some updates last night and then shut it down.  Today
started the system and the gnome-panels are missing. Went to the cmd
line and when I tried $gnome-panel --replace I get the following
output :-

$ gnome-panel --replace
Unable to open desktop file /home/shirish/Desktop/brasero.desktop for
panel launcher: No such file or directory
Unable to open desktop file /home/shirish/Desktop/chromium.desktop for
panel launcher: No such file or directory
Unable to open desktop file
/usr/share/applications/chromium-browser.desktop for panel launcher:
No such file or directory

And the panel does not come back.

Looking forward for info.
