Ubuntu – Can I remove ‘dash home’ from the Unity launcher


How can I (if it's possible), remove the dash home icon on the unity launcher. My reasoning is that it is slow (taking a few seconds to open) and I much prefer Synapse for launching applications and files.

There was an answer here but that was for 12.04 and it no longer works

I don't think that this is currently possible. See this answer by Mark Shuttleworth:

In the desktop interface, the Dash icon and the Trash icon use the top and bottom slots of the launcher, always.
