I'm using Ubuntu Precise(12.04) without Unity.

sudo apt-get -y install gnome-panel

logout and login selected [GNOME Classic]. Effect is on.

So, can I disable gnome-panel's context menu ? It is appear Super-Alt-Right Click to top-panel or bottom-panel. I want fixing my customized menu Icons.

Super-Alt-Right Clicking gnome-panel, make doesn't appear context menu. – sirase Jun 8 '12 at 9:33

You can do it manually by using ~/.gconf/apps/panel/. Run this command:

mkdir ~/gnomepanelbackup ; mv ~/.gconf/apps/panel ~/gnomepanelbackup

Then run:

killall gnome-panel

After running these commands you will have backup of gnome-panel settings in /gnomepanelbackup in your home directory.
