Ubuntu – How to delete the last panel

gnome-panel

The last panel on gnome is being a pain to delete. I've tried the gconfig editor or whatever and going to desktop -> sessions and deleting the required applet text.

Then when I kill it through the task manager it still just reopens itself, being a pain.

Is there any other way to delete the last gnome panel? I don't want any of them at the moment, just my dock.

  • Open gconf-editor, in desktop/gnome/session/required_components change the panel value from gnome-panel to your dock of choice.

    Restart your session and your dock will be auto-started by gnome and re-spawned if needed.

    Note that you will lose some keyboard shortcuts like ALT+F2 if you remove your last panel, if you need them you should just hide it.
