So to go further into detail I have a screenshot of my desktop right

what I need help with is removing the whole bar on the top including the battery the wifi the tabs the little activities bar completely.

Thanks :)

gdbus call --session --dest org.gnome.Shell --object-path /org/gnome/Shell --method org.gnome.Shell.Eval string:'Main.panel.hide();'

above command hides the bar so that if you need to call back, you can do so with below command

gdbus call --session --dest org.gnome.Shell --object-path /org/gnome/Shell --method org.gnome.Shell.Eval string:'Main.panel.show();'

You can destroy the panel such that you cant call back,

gdbus call --session --dest org.gnome.Shell --object-path /org/gnome/Shell --method org.gnome.Shell.Eval string:'Main.panel.destroy();'

All the above commands will revert back once you relogin. To make any of the command to be persistent, need to add the command you required in startup command list.

  • This helped a lot do you know how to delete the wifi or time or activities icons/bars?
