My parents somehow agreed to try Linux. Here the steps I performed after the default install of Ubuntu 7.10.

Remove the metacity minimize animation

  • Disable the animation.
$ gconftool-2 --set --type=boolean /apps/metacity/general/reduced_resources true
  • Display contents of windows when moving (i.e., disable the awful wireframe effect).
$ gconftool-2 --set --type=boolean /desktop/gnome/interface/accessibility true
