My kde panel, for some reason is refusing to autohide. I know the remedy when a similar situation occurs in windows (kill the "explorer" process and restart it). How can I do that in the plasma desktop (kill the panel and then restart it)?

Assuming KDE5 / Plasma, the panel is drawn by plasmashell, so:
Code:
killall plasmashell; plasmashell &
from a terminal or the krunner dropdown ought to do it.

As steve_v say but usually I redirect std error and output in /dev/null
Code:
killall plasmashell && kstart5 plasmashell &> /dev/null
