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.

  • Thank you for response. I'm tried your guide. But, Super-Alt-Right Click gnome-panel then, Behavior doesn't changed. I want disable context menu. [add panel] [property] [delete this panel] [new panel] Make Those context menu doesn't appear. Sorry my poor English. Thanks.
