Re: Hide fbpanel icon

I just updated my cygwin install with X at 1.17.2-2 and now the small
panel icon shows up in the upper left of my screen with no task bar icon
and now way to remove it.  Prior to the upgrade I was able to close that
button (by right clicking the "panel" entry in the Windows task bar
which left the x server running.

Is there a way to get rid of that icon?  I only ever use the system tray
icon and the fbpanel icon is always in the way of desktop icons.  I
can't seem to move it anywhere either.

If I comment out fbpanel in startxwinrc then nothing loads (I don't
normally have an xterm come up, I just want the server running and waiting).

If your /etc/X11/xinit/startxwinrc mentions fbpanel, you don't have the latest version (see [1]), so maybe try updating or reinstalling the xinit package?

If you have a custom ~/.startxwinrc, then base it on the current /etc/X11/xinit/startxwinrc and end it with 'exec /usr/bin/xwin-xdg-menu', or even 'exec sleep infinity' if you don't like that.
