View Full Version : [ubuntu] How to make Desktop Wall zoom effects way faster

Because there is no traditional task bar in Unity I would like to use Desktop wall instead of it. Only thing that I really don't like are following small features:

1) Zooming in and out is too slow.
I tried configuring Compiz, but I couldn't get rid of the zoom effect. I would prefer instant zoom, without any animation.
2) When zoomed out, you can't drag'n'drop windows from desktop to another.
This is minor issue, and I know there are alternate methods. But in general sense this would be great feature. Can it be enabled? I didn't find that in configuration options either.
And thanks, if you can help me with this. Mean while I'm using XFCE.
