Hello all

How do I disable Opaque Window Moving (a blackbox term) in gnome?

I have a slow unit at home but user wants it gnome not blackbox, she siad she can live with the slow proccesing but not the super slow moving of windows.

I looked at the preferences menu found nothing (or maybe Im an idiot and could not see it)

TIA

Code:
 gconftool-2 --direct -s --config-source \
xml:readwrite:/etc/gconf/gconf.xml.defaults \
-t bool /apps/metacity/general/reduced_resources true


Run as root. You may need to do this before gnome starts up. Perhaps do it like this:

1) open an console (CTRL-ALT-F1)
2) Run: `/sbin/init 3`
3) kill off any gnome-ish looking things ;)
4) Run the above command.

This was set to transparent in one of the beta versions, but people didn't like that for a default. Take a look at /usr/sbin/blag-firstboot. The code is in there, but commented out.

Hi Jebba


It WORKSSSSS, but I did not do those funcky init 3 stuff you told me about :roll: . Upon seeing gconftool in the command I thought maybe the GConf Tool might come in handy. And Yes there it is in System Tools -> Configuration editor I just follwed the path on you coder and viola!!! it is done :lol: (this really remind of my Registry days with windows) and it is only for the current user not for the whole system


ThanksALot[/i]
