View Full Version : Howto get rid of the panels on login (lucid)

I found this solution when I finished setting up AWN the way I wanted it, and still had that stupid top bar taking up my precious screen real estate.

This is a hack, but it works, and until gnome-panel appears in Sessions again, it's all I've found that works.

Press Alt+F2 to open the run dialog (Super+space if you prefer Gnome Do).
type gconf-editor

In the window that appears, expand the following:

Select session, and double click on the name "required_components_list"
Highlight panel and press remove.

Now close gconf-editor, logout and log back in.
Viola! No more gnome-panel!
