      If you have compiz installed you can enter Alt+F2 and enter compiz settings manager and look for this item in the main window

    Just upgraded to 11.04 and I’ve got to admit – the new interface SUCKS! I tried these instructions, about:config appears but won’t actually run. So I’m guessing 11.04 is FULL OF BUGS!

    Mr. ALDO: You need to install “compizconfig setting manager” first (not installed by default)
