I would like to remove the GNOME panel completely. I spend most of my time in a (
tmux) terminal or a browser. Synapse and a small hidden AWN panel fit the rest of my needs.
I have tried all recommended solutions including this (found it a few places):
However it always comes back at log in. I have tried changing the required components > panel to avant-whatever as well as to empty. I have tried setting them both as default (right click set as default).
Right now I just have the last panel set to transparent and auto hide, but it still tends to be annoying.
What do I need to do to get rid of this damn thing?
Using gconf-editor, gconftool2, and/or Ubuntu tweak to set
avant-window-navigator is not working. The setting stays when I reboot, but the empty gnome panel sticks around.
