    Question Panel only in one workspace.


    Hello.

    I need to put the Panel (the bar of the top) into just one workspace. The others workspaces must not have the Panel. I was trying to do it but I couldn't.

    I'm using:
    Gnome 2.26.1
    Ubuntu 9.04

    Thanks,

    Roby

    I don't think that this is possible (or at least not easy). I've never seen it done and I've looked quite a bit for anything and couldn't find anything at all

    The gnome wm -metacity- is quite limited. If there's a way to do it (and I am not saying that *there is*) it must be with devilspie, which is what some people use to do fancy thing like this in gnome.

    It might worth a try.

    Panel only in one workspace.
    Welcome to the forums!

    If all else fails, as a work around you could try enabling autohide and then the panel wouldn't show unless you put your cursor over its position on the screen.

    Let us know how it all turns out, whatever you should come up with.

    I've heard that you can configure autopanel so that little bit doesn't show, but I've never tried it:
