Ubuntu – How to delete Gnome Panel


I am trying to get rid of my Gnome panels so that I can go to a purely Docky/Gnome-Do environment.

I have got rid of everything, except for a single remaining panel which I cannot delete.

The text "Delete this panel" is greyed out – any pointers about how to get rid of it?

I haven't used gnome for a while, but I used to do that with gconf-editor.

Open "desktop >> gnome >> session >> required_components", then double-click the "panel" option, then remove the "gnome-panel" value and close it, then just:

killall gnome-panel

Last time I used this method was with Karmic tho.
