Remove additional panels from KDE 4 Plasma

Just in case anyone is facing the same situation. One can easily add panels to the Desktop by righ-clicking. But I did not find any option to remove them.

What you need to do is find the file /home/user/.kde4/share/config/plasma-appletsrc. This file define the containers and therefore the panels. Find the panel and remove the entries for it.

You will have to do this without Plasma being started because on shutdown it will overwrite the file. So leave KDE and do it in a shell and then log back in.
