I want to remove the keyboard layout icon from the wingpanel, a white block which is useless for me in there.

I have already tried DConf-Tools following the instructions given in this answer, yet I cannot make it work.

Any help will be much appreciated.


You can remove the keyboard indicator via the command line

sudo apt remove --purge wingpanel-indicator-keyboard 

Or via any package manager remove the wingpanel-indicator-keyboard package.

  • this works! You can also use this to hide/remove other indicators example: sudo apt remove --purge wingpanel-indicator-power removes power/brightness indicator – fenucci May 29 '17 at 9:12
