How to reset the Gnome Menu Panel

Yesterday my Ubuntu Gnome Menu Panel got hidden and/or deleted by mistake. 
Here is a great tip on how to recover it:

Boot the system upto Login Window. Press Ctrl + Alt+F1

Now You will get a Text based login screen

login with your username and password

now you will get a $ prompt.

Type the following Command

$ rm -rf .gnome .gnome2 .gconf .gconfd

Now Press Ctrl + Alt+F7 

and login Gnome. Every thing appear in the menu bar.
