How to get back missing gnome-panel icons/applets

People always say network manager icon,sound icon,or other applets is losing from the gnome-panel and want how to get the icon back.Despite these icons’ missing may be caused by series reasons,the first solution come to my mind is add them back by “Add to Panel” in right-click on panel menu.

All these icons can be re-added onto the gnome-panel,so we just need to know what’s the applet name.See following picture:

The picture shows all applet names,you can check them by right-click on an icon and select “About”.
So if sound icon,mail notify icon,or graphics driver icon is missing, add indicator applet to panel.If switch user,shutdown,etc.., add indicator applet session.If network manager,add notification area.If date and time,add clock.

Change timeout delay for Sudo command password in Ubuntu

Ubuntu default disable the root user and sudo runs the command needs super privilege.When you first run a sudo command,it asks for the login user password and it won’t ask again in 5 minutes,because the terminal remember the password for 5 minutes (the default timeout).This tutorial will show you how to change this default sudo command password timeout.

Edit sudoers.tmp using this command in Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal:

gksudo gedit /etc/sudoers
find the line says:
Defaults env_reset
change it into
Defaults env_reset , timestamp_timeout=x

here change “x” to the minutes you want the terminal remember.

Note:You can set “x” to -1,so that the terminal will remember sudo password until you log-out or close this terminal window.To force terminal ask password again when running sudo command,use:

sudo -K
