View Full Version : [ubuntu] [metacity] back to basic black outline alt-tab behaviour

I actually like the basic alt-tab behaviour that draws a black outline around each window as I cycle through them, a la the behaviour when I switch Visual Effects to "None" in System -> Preferences -> Appearance. Is there any way that I can get metacity to use this behaviour even when I have Visual Effects set to "Normal" ?

try this:

press Alt+F2, type ccsm
play around with the window management section, there are a lot of options, not sure if what you're looking for is one of them, but you're bound to find something you like :)

Hope this helps!

static application switcher needs to be edited somehow
