How to add Unity 2d panel to XFCE environment, but only Unity 2d panel, not the dash

share|improve this question
Any specific reason to? the XFCE seems to do pretty much the same as the Unity panel.. – Uri Herrera Aug 23 '12 at 13:03
I like Unity 2d panel. I've set up global menu on xfce panel but it's not as nice as Unity 2d have. – Alen Aug 23 '12 at 14:38

you have to run unity-2d-panel command . this will just give you the unity panel on the top.If you add this to startup then automatically it will run at startup everytime and you can add it with session and startup .

hope that helps.
