22.04 disappointed

After rebooting, I got this:

Where are my top menu settings? I can’t activate the super key, nothing happens, all carefully set settings are gone. There is only a plank and the only icon at the top is the notification icon, nothing else.

What did you do before this happened?

Looks like you panel settings have been corrupted.

Unless you have manually backed these up the only solution i can suggest is to do a panel reset

nohup budgie-panel --reset --replace &
