With respect to this guide:
http://www.glx-dock.org/ww_page.php?p=Remove%20the%20last%20Gnome%20Panel&lang=en

Inability to use Alt-F2 combination when completely removing Gnome Panel, can be avoided by installing 'gmrun' software, which is in Ubuntu Repository.

$ sudo apt-get install gmrun

Then binding Alt-F2 combination to this command in your window manager config. Compiz in my case.

'gmrun' also has a history and other KeWl stuff which can be configured through text config.

$ man gmrun

That still won't let you use Alt-F1 to invoke Start menu, but at least that's something. And I'm not using Alt-F1 combination anyways.

If anyone knows a workaround for Alt-F1, plz share

Regards,
-P

Hi, the fast launcher box is available within the gmenu applet (with editable shortcut)
but thanks anyway for the tip, that could help those that won't use that applet.

PS : aptitude is better than apt-get as it respects your system settings for dependencies (install and removes recommands and suggests if enabled, and they are by default)

I'm using GnoMenu, which I find more eye-candy, than GMenu, although GnoMenu doesn't support hotkeys (or I am stupid enough not to find where to set this). For hotkey feature it might be a workaround to set GMenu applet size to 1x1. This visually removes it from Dock, but keeps all the functionality.

Thanks for aptitude tip! I am addicted to apt-get for some reason, but will seriously consider switching to aptitude.

if there is no shortkey in GnoMenu, we can easily add one to the applet
