I tried to use the gmenu-simple editor, but it said it can't find it. It's just for a good look.

A solution taken from the arch-wiki:

When doing a GNOME install, some unwanted icons might appear in the panel. To remove the icons, edit the GNOME panel script.

For example, to remove the universal access icon. Remove a11y from the AREA_ORDER line and comment out the a11y line in AREA_SHELL_IMPLEMENTATION

/usr/share/gnome-shell/js/ui/panel.js

const STANDARD_STATUS_AREA_ORDER = ['ally', 'keyboard', 'volume', 'network', 'bluetooth', 'battery', 'userMenu'];
const STANDARD_STATUS_AREA_SHELL_IMPLEMENTATION = {
    'a11y': imports.ui.status.accessibility.ATIndicator
    'volume': imports.ui.status.volume.Indicator,
    'battery': imports.ui.status.power.Indicator,
    'keyboard': imports.ui.status.keyboard.XKBIndicator,
    'userMenu': imports.ui.userMenu.UserMenuButton
};

to

/usr/share/gnome-shell/js/ui/panel.js

const STANDARD_STATUS_AREA_ORDER = ['keyboard', 'volume', 'network', 'bluetooth' 'battery', 'userMenu'];
const STANDARD_STATUS_AREA_SHELL_IMPLEMENTATION = {
    //'a11y': imports.ui.status.accessibility.ATIndicator
    'volume': imports.ui.status.volume.Indicator,
    'battery': imports.ui.status.power.Indicator,
    'keyboard': imports.ui.status.keyboard.XKBIndicator,
    'userMenu': imports.ui.userMenu.UserMenuButton
};

save your results and restart the shell to see results:

Alt+F2
r
Enter

I am using this right now and it works with my gnome-shell!

It may be better to use the Evil extension however, because every update to these scripts will undo the work. Only a version update will require any modification to extensions. –  Gary Apr 13 '12 at 4:00

.. one simple task -

Start Terminal and type in "sudo nautilus" ( without quotes )

Now, go to usr/share/applications/ ( click File System to see usr folder )..

You'll see a whole bunch of apps, whichever you don't want to see in the Gnome panel you drag it from there to another place ( whether it's desktop, folder etc.. do NOT remove it )..

Will work ;)
