Getting rid of XFCE4-panel...using xfce4 and Ubuntu


I'm using XFCE4 on Ubuntu.

Which file would I need to comment out some lines in so that "xfce4-panel" does not load upon startup? I tried [apt-get remove xfce4-panel] and I couldn't even log in because my session would crash. I had to reinstall the panel to load xfce4 successfully. I don't see an obvious place to get rid of the panel at the bottom.

thanks

There's an easier way if you don't want to go about configuring your start-up files. You can just kill it with top.

Code:
195508/home/riwa/# top

top - 19:58:09 up 19 min,  1 user,  load average: 0.07, 0.22, 0.11

Then type: k 2096 (or whatever PID the job has). Save and exit and it won't bother you again!
