View Full Version : [ubuntu] Sluggish App Switcher (Alt-tab)

October 24th, 2012, 04:55 PM
I just upgraded from 10.04 to 12.04 and am now struggling a bit with the new app switcher. The main problem is the delay in popping up, but I'm also not sure that the new behavior of folding multiple windows into one icon will work for me.

I've seen this post (http://askubuntu.com/questions/45821/simpler-alt-tab-in-unity) of using compiz (CCSM) to change the app switcher, but it appears that it no longer works in 12.04.

Is it still possible? Is there a better solution?

Finally got around to researching a solution for this - and found a good one: switch to Unity 2D. At the login prompt, clicking on the Ubuntu symbol reveals this option. Unity 2D brings back a simple, snappy task switcher. What a relief!
