(with instructions there as to what to do)
Or you can download from their website:
Then in Ubuntu Tweaks go to: Tweaks->Unity. You will see the option to turn off the HUD at the top of the page.
As an aside, you can also turn off the Ubuntu log on sound in the Sound option on the Tweaks page.

The HUD is a tap or press of the left Alt Key.
(N.B. I am no expert on these matters. I may be wrong with what I think the launcher and HUD are :} )
If you look in System Settings->Keyboard Layout, the third option down is "Alt/Win Key Behaviour". The fourth option down of this (first being default) you might be able to use with a full keyboard.
My laptop/netbooks don't have a full keyboard so I have no alternative for the Alt (pun intended) key atm :}

I recently installed Ubuntu 14.04 (Trusty Tahr) onto a different HDD to replace Ubuntu 12.04 (Precise Pangolin). I was going from 32-bit to 64-bit so it had to be a full install and not an upgrade. Once again the Alt-# keyboard keys were stolen from the EL client.
I used the second answer from
sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager
Run "CompbizConfig Settings Manager"
"Desktop" group -> Ubuntu Unity Plugin -> General tab ->
"Key to show the menu bar while pressed" click the button just to the right of the text.
It will bring up a dialog box where you can select the key combination you want to bring up the HUD.
I chose <Alt><Super>.
Now EL client gets Alt-# for magic spells and Alt-D for closing/opening all the dialog boxes.
PS: The "System Settings" -> "Hardware" group -> Keyboard -> "Shortcuts" tab -> Launchers category -> Key to show the HUD [Disabled] failed to pass through the Alt-# keys to the EL client.
