I've set my panels to auto-hide and want them to be on top of everything once they scroll out.

Which gconf-key do I have to use to achieve this?

Also I looked for a list of gconf keys -- somebody knows?

Cheers, T


What you're seeing is a bug. It occurs on my system (11.04) from time to time but I can't properly reproduce it and don't have a reliable fix either. It's not a simple gconf setting. There are various workarounds on the ubuntu forums you can try.


I think you're looking for:

ALT-F2 > "gconf-editor" > apps > panel > toplevels > top_panel_screen0 > auto_hide_size > 1
  • Thanks for the answer, but NOPE! The panel scrolls out, but it does so BEHIND the windows. Wanted is IN FRONT of the windows. Thx, T – tliketea Apr 30 '11 at 9:46

  • Can you add a screenshot of the problem ? – Coldfish May 7 '11 at 9:24
