When the MythTV frontend is full screen, the taskbars and/or Unity is still visible. How can I hide them?

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:

For 11.04 and newer
sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager from a terminal (CTRL+ALT+T), then run it from the dash, just open dash and type ccsm and then goto the Unity plugin and in there you can choose panel opacity to 0. It's the best I can suggest without disabling compiz, and therefore unity.
Install compizconfig-settings-manager using the following command.
sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager
Go to Ubuntu Unity plugin and set the option for Hide launcher to auto-hide. Then, go to Workarounds and check the box for the option Legacy Fullscreen Support.
This method worked for me in 11.04.
CCSM -> Workarounds -> Legacy Full Screen Suppot.
Restart mythfrontend fixed
For 10.10 and older
This is caused by compiz. Disable Compiz by going to System > Preferences > Appearance (on your Gnome taskbar). Click on the Visual Effects tab, and select none.
