GNOME Bugzilla – Bug 417853
Lockdown: Remove Places from menu bar
Last modified: 2020-11-07 12:13:47 UTC
I couldnt find a way to remove "Places" from the GNOME menu bar. At least not with Alacarte, please let me know wether this is possible or not, and if so how can i get it done.
Thanks in advance
I assume that you are a system administrator. Could you tell us why you need to remove this menu item? That helps us to understand your needs.

Patch for configurable Places menu (new GConf key 'disable_places_menu')
Mario Eckl posted a patch for this in Red Hat bugzilla:
"It is not possible to hide the "Places" entry from the menu bar without
modifing the source. Even if lockdown settings are enabled, the "Places" menu
is still shown and entries are offered to access the local filesystem, network
shares and so on ..."
Review of attachment 142924 [details] [review]:
The attached patch targets GConf instead of GSettings. As such it is not applicable to the current Code. But the general layout of the patch can most likely be used to create a suitable patch for GSettings.
bugzilla.gnome.org is being replaced by gitlab.gnome.org. We are closing all
old feature requests in Bugzilla which have not seen updates for many years.
If you still use gnome-panel and if you are still requesting this feature in a currently supported version of GNOME (currently that would be 3.38), then please feel free to report it at https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gnome-panel/-/issues/
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry it could not be implemented.
