Ubuntu – How to remove the menu in the top panel


The old menu of Archive, Edit etc. is behind the gnome-shell panel and it's very annoying. How do I remove this menu in the top panel? I'm using Ubuntu 11.10 by the way.

Here is the problem.

I hope someone can help.

By the looks, that's the Ubuntu global menu. To remove it, open a terminal and paste this

sudo apt-get remove appmenu-gtk3 appmenu-gtk appmenu-qt

You may need to restart your computer afterwards. If you wver want them back, simply reinstall the packages.
