Ubuntu – Mate-panel: Finding auto-hide in dconf editor


Most parameters in the mate-panel properties directly relate in the dconf editor to

/org/mate/panel/toplevels/top/    resp. /bottom/

enter image description here

For example, changing the size gives instant feedback on either side.

What I cannot find is a matching dconf-value for AutoHide. Nowhere to be found.

It is changeable by command line. (And doing so has the desired effect.) – Why does dconf editor not show it?

$> dconf write /org/mate/panel/toplevels/bottom/auto-hide true
$> dconf write /org/mate/panel/toplevels/bottom/auto-hide false

This appears to be a problem with your Ubuntu version, your MATE installation, or your Dconf Editor. This is MATE 1.16.0 on Ubuntu 16.10, with Dconf Editor 3.20.3.

For me, the auto-hide key is present in dconf-editor.
