Removing the Ubuntu Natty launcher bar

In Ubuntu 11.04 (Natty Narwhal):

  • Click the far top-left button to bring up the search dialog.
  • Type “login” without the quotes and click on “Login Screen”.
  • Change “Select Ubuntu as default session” to “Select Ubuntu Classic as default session”.
  • Log out and back in.

Congratulation, you have removed the abomination. Prepare for 11.10 where they will no doubt remove Ubuntu Classic as an option.

Looks like I called it correctly. Didn’t have to be psychic for that one.
