    Any news about an option to disable the Unity Launcher Bar yet?

    • There won’t an option to disable/remove the left launcher, just hide it from System Settings -> Appearances -> Behavior tab.

        Yeah, that was possible before, but that’s not even near the solution. Unity Launcher is terrible, I sure hope Canonical remove it from Unity in the next version. Until then, sadly it’s no Ubuntu for me :(
