How do you delete the bottom panel on KDE?


I've set up Ubuntu with KDE and make it work like Apple MacOS (just the way I like it) and want the dock, just like OSX. But, one problem: I can't delete the bottom bar. Kind of stupid, but it won't let me. Does someone know how to fix it?

Thanks in advance.

You should specify how you have tried to delete it.

Try 'killall kicker'

Right click on an existing panel, go to Remove Panel > Select the appropriate panel to remove.

Unless I've completely misunderstood...

If you want the Panel on the top of the screen like OS X then go into the Control Center --> Desktop --> Panels option then in the Arrangements tab Position option select the panel in one of the top positions and apply the changes.

Is the usual method - one hopes you've tried this already - hence the message.

But that's a guess... knowing what you did, what you hoped to achieve, and what happened - exactly - helps us tailor a solution to for you.

You've told us the second part (you wanted to remove the bottom panel) but none of the rest.

Can you remove the top panel, for eg?

I don't think you can remove the main panel, but you can certainly hide it. Right click it, go to Configure panel->Hiding.

Check off only hide when panel button is pressed, and Show left panel button.

Hide the panel, and then uncheck show left panel button. It should be gone now.
