I like Unity but I'd rather use Docky as a launcher than the Unity Launcher. Is it possible to remove the launcher in Unity 2D or possibly preventing it from loading at start-up? Thanks
Your answer is in this thread: How to autohide the Launcher in Unity 2D?
dconf write /com/canonical/unity-2d/launcher/hide-mode 1 dconf write /com/canonical/unity-2d/launcher/use-strut false
to hide the Bar, that it now shows directly.
and use the following tool do configure that it doesnt come when moving your mouse to the right: http://ubuntuone.com/0eyiDuvaOmAi25OlN3wcTX
