    Question Remove Gnome "Menu Panel" (Top One)

    Hi, just a quick question (I hope),
    I want the top panel of gnome (Menu Panel) to be remove by default on everyones account, as it will not be needed.
    If possible is there a command I could add to a Log on Script that would remove it.
    Thanks

    Here is a copy of my default.session file what do I need to comment out?

    # This is the default session that is launched if the user doesn't
    # already have a session.
    # The RestartCommand specifies the command to run from the $PATH.
    # The Priority determines the order in which the commands are started
    # (with Priority = 0 first) and defaults to 50.
    # The id provides a name that is unique within this file and passed to the
    # app as the client id which it must use to register with gnome-session.
    # The clients must be numbered from 0 to the value of num_clients - 1.

    [Default]
    num_clients=4
    0,id=default0
    0,Priority=10
    0,RestartCommand=gnome-wm --sm-client-id default0
    1,id=default1
    1,Priority=40
    1,RestartCommand=gnome-panel --sm-client-id default1
    2,id=default2
    2,Priority=40
    2,RestartCommand=nautilus --no-default-window --sm-client-id default2
    3,id=default3
    3,Priority=60
    3,RestartCommand=gnome-cups-icon --sm-client-id default3

    Thanks

    But if you still need some functionality from gnome-panel don't kill it, try this:
    Start gconf-editor. Navigate to:
    /apps/panel/general/toplevel_id_list
    Go for Edit key and delete unwanted panel(s)

    But after session restart, they are restored.
    /apps/panel/default_setup/toplevel_id_list
    looks promising but not a complite solution...
