How to remove 'title bar' in Gnome ?

Hello,

I am using Gnome Version: 2.24.2 in Open Solaris 2009.06 I am willing to tweak it and I do not want the 'title bar' at all. Could some
one please help me to achive it? basically for closing the window I prefer go to 'File->close' instead of clickig on 'X' on right most side button.

I would prefer to remove this title bar, as it would allow me more space in the screen.

Thank you in advance,
Beer

Hi jazzIIIlove

I would like to delete the title bar (with close,maximize,minimize button )from all the application. I think this is the feature of the gnome.
Kindly let me know how can I remove this.

Thank you,
Balbir

It's not Gnome directly which controls the title bar, but the window-manager employed by Gnome; by default, this is Metacity.
This manager is in charge of "window decorations" like borders, buttons, bars and shadows.

A malfunctioning window-manager may very well result in no borders and title bar being displayed (I've seen it dozens of times when setting up Compiz), but getting this effect on purpose is quite difficult.

Best you could do is the following:
1.- type"gconf-editor" in a root terminal, browse to Apps > Metacity > General, and disable all visual elements of the title bar like the several types of buttons
2.- then edit your current Gnome scheme to reduce the size of the title bar to 'none' or '0'. A short guide on how to do this is found here:

Hi there;

I just right click on the upper site of the screen in my ubuntu-gnome, I select delete panel, it's gone.
I would like to delete the title bar
issue the command in your terminal:
gnome-appearance-properties

Appearance Preferences will be appearing, you can customize your stuff there, yet I don't know that you can achieve the following request of yours:
>>delete the title bar (with close,maximize,minimize button )from all the application

Yet, it seems there seems an elegant workaround as in the link, that doesn't recommend removing it completely as follows.
http://live.gnome.org/DesktopInterface which you will end up with the following link.

Best regards.
