logout and login selected [GNOME Classic]. Effect is on.

So, can I disable gnome-panel's context menu ? It is appear Super-Alt-Right Click to top-panel or bottom-panel. I want fixing my customized menu Icons.

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.
