Wink Re: Auto hide top panel in Gnome 3

I think you will need an shell extension for that... as yet unwritten though AFAIK

*** I'm trying to get my head round the rather scarce n random api docs now - cos i'm quite after that one myself ***

Re: Auto hide top panel in Gnome 3

An extension for that would be pretty cool :-) Another IDEA for reduce my mouse movements is to show only the dock if the mouse is on the left side and show only the virtual desktops if the mouse is on the right side, like in the attachement... Is this possible with an extension?

Re: Auto hide top panel in Gnome 3

This, I can happily report, seems to do the trick:
http://fedora.rasmil.dk/blog/?p=253

I just loaded it and have only been using it for several minutes now, but I'm pleased as can be so far. I think my greatest annoyance with GNOME 3 was having to look at that bar.

Oooh, nice! Now if only we could move the bar to the bottom.

Hmm, this shell extension doesn't seem to work anymore.

Re: Auto hide top panel in Gnome 3

I too am looking for a way to autohide the top bar.

Since the top bar isn't really usable for anything, hide the danged thing

Now if they had made it where it was configurable so that it could be used for something, then I wouldn't be so quick to hide it.

Re: Auto hide top panel in Gnome 3

Re: Auto hide top panel in Gnome 3

A yum search:

Quote:
gnome-shell-extension
reveals a bunch of extensions including gnome-shell-extension-autohidetopbar. I've been using it and it works but sometimes takes several tries (double-clicks) to make it hide/unhide. In fact a double right-click seems to work better.

Re: Auto hide top panel in Gnome 3

Hmm, doesn't matter how many times I right click - it does diddly squat.

That schtooopidttt bar is especially annoying on a netbook. So, back to LXDE again.

Re: Auto hide top panel in Gnome 3

It works great for me. I just followed http://www.ubuntubuzz.com/2011/12/au...panel-bar.html

Dl the https://launchpad.net/%7Ewebupd8team...oneiric.tar.gz

Only extract the autohide folder not the debian folder into ~/.local/share/gnome-shell/extensions

Logout/restart

Use gnome-tweak tool

Shell extensions and there is now a new option for autohide the topbar.

Now the top bar autohides!
