A fey days ago the Wingpanel icon showed up in my dock, and it have been there ever since. It does not go away with reboots or anything.

Does someone have a way to hide i from the dock again?

Open terminal and type:

pkill wingpanel (it will kill wingpanel process, but the process should restart itself without the dock icon)


Right-click and uncheck the 'Keep in Dock'-option.
