Ubuntu – How to remove the Unity launcher


How can we remove the launcher that come with Unity on this new Ubuntu version ?

Best Answer

In simple words: you can't. By design, the launcher is intended to stay there always. If you want to give it up, the only way to do so is to give up the entire unity interface by switching to some other DE or by switching to the classic GNOME session.

Moving the launcher to some other edge of the screen is also not implemented and wouldn't be, as per Mark's comment on a bug.
