I have a desktop configuration in the indicator applications to choose the desktop preferences, but i dont know how to disable it.

enter image description here

I know i can use the blacklist in .config/indicators. But actually i didn't manage to disable it.

Ok I manage to resolve it. I only have to disable the option inside the program (dont show monitors in the panel). I was looking for a solution more complicated. – algoban May 30 '11 at 17:38
you should post that as an answer. – RolandiXor May 30 '11 at 18:03
@Roland Taylor. I tried but I could not, because the system doesnt allow me to answer me before 8 hours. – algoban May 31 '11 at 1:13

I see that an answer has been found. However, I wanted to ask if this issue could have been reconciled using gconf-editor. Under Apps/gnome-settings-daemon/xrandr, there is a setting (checkbox) for show_notification_icon. After some experimentation, that seems to work on my system.
