Hide Gnome Panel

Is it possible to make a command for hiding the gnome panel? I'd like to put it in my wine sh script, so the panel hides and shows automatic when I start and stop wine.

I've been having some similar trouble (trying to play Starcraft is tricky with the panel taking up the bottom of the screen! ). I found that setting the panel to autohide, and setting the hidden height to "0" or "1" works well. I looked around and I think that "gconftool-2" is what we're looking for. The keys to change are:


So, your script might look like this:

gconftool-2 --type bool --set /apps/panel/profiles/default/toplevels/bottom_panel/auto_hide "True"
gconftool-2 --type int --set /apps/panel/profiles/default/toplevels/bottom_panel/auto_hide_size "0"
Let me know if that helps!
