I have added a screen shot of my current desktop in classic view.

As you can see, there is no bottom panel, and at the top bar, the button at the top left corner doesn't do anything. So I cant access my applications. When I open a window/browser and minimize it, it goes on top panel. (Like NBR view).

When I open terminal to switch back to the NBR using the desktop-switcher command -- i get the following errors --- but it does eventually take me to NBR view and everything works fine. My only problem is with the classic view..I just dont know why i cant have the old school classic view on my netbook, i definitely screwed up something which is causing this weird remix version of classic view (check screenshot).

Any help to restore my original classic view would be gr8tly appreciated.
