    12.04 Unity - Can't get rid of Workspace Switcher Button

    How can I remove Workspace Switcher Button while still having multiple workspaces?
    I've tried to delete lines from /usr/share/unity-2d/shell/launcher/Launcher.qml. Also I've disabled Viewport Switcher in ccsm.

    And other useless (for me) thing is "Show Desktop" item among apps in ALT+TAB application switcher.

    In ccsm go to "General Properties" and then to "Desktop Size" tab.
    It's the last tab on the right.
    Set all values to "1".
    Then close ccsm and restart your computer.
    After restart you will find that the Workspace Switcher Button is disappeared.

    I use 4 workspaces horizontally arranged. Switching them off is not an option.

    This works great. Any idea how to do it from a script?

    I used the following script to set the number of workspaces to 1 but the switcher button is still visable.


    Code:
    gconftool --set /apps/compiz-1/general/screen0/options/hsize --type=int 1 
    gconftool --set /apps/compiz-1/general/screen0/options/vsize --type=int 1
    Whats wrong with the script?

    Here is the script I use that seems to work.

    Code:
    gconftool-2 --type int --set /apps/compiz-1/general/screen0/options/vsize 1
    gconftool-2 --type int --set /apps/compiz-1/general/screen0/options/hsize 1
    gconftool-2 --type int --set /apps/compiz-1/general/screen0/options/number_of_desktops 1
