Less stuff on my screen

Gnome Do quietly taking over
Do is qui­et­ly tak­ing over my desk­top

Here’s a cur­rent screen­shot of my com­put­er.

Ulti­mate­ly, both the pan­el and Do remain off-screen, so I have a full screen free of dis­trac­tions when I’m work­ing on some­thing.

Col­laps­ing my pan­el into just the upper-left cor­ner was sim­ple, but a few GConf tweaks made it hide more and faster:

  • /apps/panel/toplevels/top_panel_screen0/auto_hide_size 0 (Makes it hide com­plete­ly with no on-screen rem­nant while hid­den)
  • /apps/panel/toplevels/top_panel_screen0/enable_animations unchecked
  • /apps/panel/toplevels/top_panel_screen0/hide_delay 300
  • /apps/panel/toplevels/top_panel_screen0/unhide_delay 200

For those lat­ter three:I found these to be the best for mak­ing the pan­el feel respon­sive and get­ting it out of the way when I don’t want it; YMMV.
