[SOLVED] Gnome 3 Remove Accessibility Icon From... task tray thing

I've removed all the accessibility bits from F15/Gnome3, but it still appears in the control center and the silly icon still appears in my top panel. It's the largest, hence brightest icon up there, yet I will never use it once for the life of this computer. How do I remove it?

I've gone through dconf-editor (changed antialiasing to lcd from default of grayscale incidentally), but couldn't find anything.

Other minor annoyances are that gnome never remembers I turned bluetooth off, so after resume from suspend or rebooting it's on again. I'd like to remove blue tooth as well to be honest, but that's next weeks job.

Thanks in advance for tips or advice,
S

Re: Gnome 3 Remove Accessibility Icon From... task tray thing

Hi

I haven't checked out how to disable accessibility but to answer the other question:

Disabling the bluetooth service permanently by masking it,

ln -s /dev/null /etc/systemd/system/bluetooth.service
systemctl daemon-reload

+1 for this feature.

I had to hand edit the theme to remove the accessibility icon. I know by default it is on, and needs to be. But for the vast majority of users it is a never used menu. There needs to be a simple option to turn off the accessibility menu in the shell.

Re: Gnome 3 Remove Accessibility Icon From... task tray thing

Thanks Rahul, disabling the service is likely the best we can do, since gnome-shell depends on it. robgarth, could I bother you for the link where you learned to do that, or perhaps the file you edited?

Re: Gnome 3 Remove Accessibility Icon From... task tray thing

This might be the type of thing best done in an extension.

But basically I just edited the file: /usr/share/gnome-shell/js/ui/panel.js

And removed the line: 'a11y': imports.ui.status.accessibility.ATIndicator,

const STANDARD_TRAY_ICON_SHELL_IMPLEMENTATION = {
- 'a11y': imports.ui.status.accessibility.ATIndicator,
'volume': imports.ui.status.volume.Indicator,
'battery': imports.ui.status.power.Indicator,
'keyboard': imports.ui.status.keyboard.XKBIndicator

Sweet... editing that file and that line worked a treat. The line above it also referenced the panel order, so you can re-arrange things if you like. Thanks much guys!

Re: Gnome 3 Remove Accessibility Icon From... task tray thing

Yeah thanks from me too, I commented it out and it works. Any idea about removing the ibus icon? I didn't see it in there.

Re: Gnome 3 Remove Accessibility Icon From... task tray thing

Hi

You could edit

const STANDARD_TRAY_ICON_ORDER = ['a11y', 'display', 'keyboard', 'volume', 'network', 'battery'];

Remove keyboard.

Do note that mucking around with these files are just hacks and will get overwritten everytime there is a GNOME Shell update. Probably extensions are the better way to do it

Re: Gnome 3 Remove Accessibility Icon From... task tray thing

also to keep the bluetooth to stop loading with Gnome, you can edit ~/.config/autostart/bluetooth-applet.desktop and change the line near the end of the file for X-GNOME-Autostart-enabled from true to false.

Re: Gnome 3 Remove Accessibility Icon From... task tray thing

@kurtdriver Once you remove all the ibus stuff from your system using add/remove, the icon doesn't appear. If, like me, you only use English, I don't really see any need for it.

@ rahul... good point to note about it being hackish. I wonder if ~/.themes/ still works .. if so changes made there should be overwritten by gnome-shell updates. In theory.

Re: Gnome 3 Remove Accessibility Icon From... task tray thing

I wonder if just editing ~/.config/autostart/imsettings-start.desktop and changing the line X-GNOME-Autostart-enabled=true to X-GNOME-Autostart-enabled=false would get rid of the ibus icon?

Hi

Sure ~/.themes works and that's how the user theme extension does things. I can't think of a good reason to have ibus installed but not use the icon but whatever.

Re: Gnome 3 Remove Accessibility Icon From... task tray thing

Removig is ok, but i use a tablet pc, and accessability does not work everywhere. e.g. if you like to search in activities, no onscreen-keyboard is able to take the input for search in google or wikipedia. i think this should be working for such devices or fingerfriendy tablets...

Re: Gnome 3 Remove Accessibility Icon From... task tray thing

Code:
yum install cellwriter

Re: Gnome 3 Remove Accessibility Icon From... task tray thing

imsettings isn't the same as accessibility, I don't think. it's the icon for complex keyboard layouts. Until recently it would show up whatever keyboard layout you use, but it should be fixed now to only show up with appropriate keyboard layouts.
