Hiding the Gnome panel

This one bugged me for ages, and it’s still not something you can completely remove, but if you are using Ubuntu or a Gnome desktop as, say, a media centre, you may not want to have the Gome panel/bar appearing at all.

The current best solution is to use gconf-editor to set the auto_hide_size of the panel you want to change (under /apps/panel/toplevels/[panel name]) to 1.  Then make sure the “auto hide” option is checked and voila – pretty much gone.
