[EN] Panel in gnome
« on: 2013/01/13, 02:12:48 »
I am new to Siduction but so far i like it. I have installed compiz and cairo-dock and would like to know how to remove the default gnome panels. I use the gnome fallback session.
 

                    Thanks danj

Hi,

I have a question please:
Why do you use gnome in fallback mode ?
Fallback mode is only if your's videocard isn't accelerated.
If your's card support gnome3 (gnome-shell mode) you can use the procedure displayed at http://forum.siduction.org/index.php?topic=3120 .
holgerw has asked almost the same thing but he has used gnome-shell mode.

Install first gnome-shell-extensions and after that please go to https://extensions.gnome.org/extension/208/panel-settings/.
There is an on/off button near upper left corner.
Move the switch to on. You will be asked if you install pannel-settings extension. Press Yes and it will be installed.
Pannel-settings will be available under the User Menu. The following options are available:
1. Visibility:
1.1. Normal
1.2. Autohide
1.3. Overview Only
2. Edge:
2.1. Top (Normal)
2.2. Bottom
Choose an option from there and that's it.

Using it you can enable/disable visibility of gnome panel and you can also change his position from top to bottom. Also it will be available (hidden) gnome-shell dash and using a drag and drop you can add launchers to it . To see gnome-shell dock bar click on top left corner after you have enabled gnome3 (gnome-shell) mode. Usually gnome-shell mode (gnome3) is enabled automattically if your's card is accelerated after you have installed gnome. In live mode gnome-fallback mode is started. See more info about it in Release Notes http://siduction.org/index.php?module=news&func=display&sid=157&lang=en .
If you want only gnome-fallback please search an desktop image how you want to look your's desktop and send a link.

Hi,

It seems that you want something else. If you will try to use gnome-shell mode please take a look at https://extensions.gnome.org/ . Almost sure you will find one that fits your's needs.

Hi,

A clean way is to autohide top and bottom panels.
If you want to autohide top and bottom panels in gnome-fallback please run dconf-editor and go to org.gnome.desktop.gnome-panel.layout.toplevels and there you will find top-panel and bottom-panel settings.

A dirty hack is to remove gnome-panel from /usr/share/gnome-session/sessions/gnome-fallback.session file. Using that you will remove both panels but you won't have as an example ALT+F2 run dialog available. Please notice that using this hack it isn't d-u safe.

You know what fits better your's needs.
