View Full Version : [ubuntu] Delete all the panels

November 25th, 2009, 08:42 AM
I installed AWN, so I deleted the bottom panel. I then added the system tray and everyrhing I need to the dock so I don't want the top panel, but it won't let me delete it. Is thera a way to do so? Also, if I want to create a new panel while having no one, how can I do?

I just found a way. I changed the entry in gconf-editor to "gnome-panel.null" It doesn't start now, but I can't use the alt+F2 shotcut. Disabling the panel this way is harmful? Does it disable anything else?

You are right Alt-F1 and Alt-F2 won`t work. Neither will the notifications.

If you set the autohide size in gconf-editor to 0 it will completely hide the panel. That might be a good alternative.

Or you could just create a keyboard shortcut to launch a terminal instead of Alt-F2.

I disable the panels by removing gnome-panel from /usr/bin.

Setting autohide size to 0 does nothing. It's the same than in 1. But I guess I just won't use alt+F2 or will configure a new shortcut as you said. What kind of notifications don't work?

Thank you for your help

I just set mine to 1 pixel, autohide, and set the unhide delay to a fairly large number.
