    Talking Remove ALL Gnome Panels

    Hey everyone!

    I want to solely use AWN for my desktop.

    I no longer need any panels.

    I can not delete the last panel on my desktop, the 'Delete This Panel' is grayed out.

    I've already searched the forums and found two commands that could work in previous versions of Ubuntu, but they do not work in Karmic.

    Here is the output of my term with the results of each command:
    $ killall gnome-panel
    $ gnome-session-remove gnome-panel
    gnome-session-remove: command not found
    The '$ killall gnome-panel' actually does kill the panel... however it comes back just as soon as it is removed.

    Thank you very much and God bless,
    Johnathan
    Most of us do and say dumb things, think before you act. If you do plan on going the dumb route, please be sure to have the cameras rolling... you can at least give the rest of us a good laugh.

    Re: Remove ALL Gnome Panels

    Code:
    sudo mv /usr/bin/gnome-panel ~/.panel_backup
    You might want to have a look at gnome-do before you do because you will loose Alt-F1 and Alt-F2

    If you decide you don`t like it

    Code:
    sudo mv ~/.panel_backup /usr/bin/gnome-panel

    @nothingspecial,

    Evidently you ARE special!

    That worked flawlessly.... I had to log off and then back in for it to work out, but it did work out.

    I made some bash scripts to bring those back if I had to.

    Now I am using AWN for everything... looking GREAT.

    I am real big on saving as much as possible in real estate on my desktop. Now all of my apps span the entire screen with nothing in the way... AWESOME!

    Again thank you nothingspecial.

    Thank you and God bless,
    Johnathan

    Re: Remove ALL Gnome Panels

    Future updates will restore the gnome-panel binary and
    you'll be back where you started.

    I think you can accomplish this cleaner by going into `gconf-editor`
    and changing "/desktop/gnome/session/required_components_list"

    Or better yet you might be able to just change
    "/desktop/gnome/session/required_components/panel" to "awn"

    @asmoore82,

    Thank you for that.

    Question... how would I do this in a script so I can easily back this out if I need to?

    You can use gconftool-2 to edit gconf keys from command line:

    Code:
    gconftool-2 --type string --set /desktop/gnome/session/required_components/panel "awn"
    Code:
    gconftool-2 --type string --set /desktop/gnome/session/required_components/panel "gnome-panel"

    @mcduck,

    Thank you for that information. gconfigtool-2 is not available... I assume that I will have to install it from the repositories??!!?

    Would this work instead:
    Code:
    gconf-editor --type string --set /desktop/gnome/session/required_components/panel "awn"
    And:
    Code:
    gconf-editor --type string --set /desktop/gnome/session/required_components/panel "gnome-panel"
    Thank you and God bless,

    It's gconftool-2 (not gconfigtool-2). Copy and paste the commands mcduck gave you.

    Yeah i used the gconf method, but i know that's cleaner but i swear theres a "smoother" way that doesn't sacrifice alt-f2 etc, anyway cheers.
