Ubuntu – Autohide Unity Launcher in Gnome Classic


I am using the Unity launcher in the Gnome Classic desktop. How can I enable the autohide feature for the launcher?

Background information:

I reverted to Gnome Classic Desktop as described here: How to revert to GNOME Classic Desktop?

Next, I start unity-2d-shell as described here: Ubuntu 12.04 Gnome Classic and Unity Launcher

Best Answer

You need dconf-editor (sudo apt-get install dconf-tools).

There, go to com => canonical => unity-2d => launcher:

Set hide-mode to 1. Instantly, the launcher will hide!
