Unity and GNOME 3 at same time

Unity and GNOME 3 at same time screenshot

My Ubuntu seems to run Unity and GNOME 3 at exactly the same time. Sure, I like it, but is there a way to remove Unity launcher?

Looks like the program unity-2d-panel is running at login, start up startup applications and uncheck it. If it doesn't appear run this from a terminal: sudo sed -i "s/NoDisplay=true/NoDisplay=false/g" /etc/xdg/autostart/*.desktop and logout and in again before restarting startup applications.

  • Thank you man, that worked perfectly. Someone must of snuck onto my laptop and added unity to startup. Ah well, it's all better now.
