No default bottom panel

In my new Ubuntu 18.04 Desktop install, the default bottom panel (e.g., show desktop, open windows, workspace switcher, etc.) does not appear. I have installed the gnome-panel app. When run from CLI, the panel appears but the system becomes unstable.

Any thoughts on what can be done to get the bottom panel to appear at startup.

Thanks

Hi,

The reason is that there is no bottom panel on Ubuntu gnome 18.04 default installation and the panel is aligned to left.
