I'm a new Ubuntu user. How to remove the menu icons in Ubuntu? I have googled and also check each System Settings but i find no options. I only use the terminal and start application from terminal - the menu icons is annoyingly ugly and I want to get rid of them.

  • Can you add a screenshot to show what you want to remove - also the version of ubuntu would be useful. – fossfreedom Dec 30 '11 at 13:14
  • I have added a screenshot showing the icons docked on the left. they are too annoying for the eyes. i only need the terminal to work with. – KMC Dec 31 '11 at 2:08

You could install the compiz config manager, and autohide the bar (settings are in the unity section).

Alternatively you could install and use the classic gnome desktop. http://tombuntu.com/index.php/2011/09/11/install-the-classic-desktop-in-ubuntu-11-10
