it’s the little things …

like the dialogue window that unfurls itself from the curtain rail like some sort of dainty ballerina. Presumably some people like it – fair enough. I don’t, and would like to switch the effect off.

Gnome 3

Ok, so you’re typing, and want to use <tab> to help you on your journey. You want to do an ‘ls’ on certain files. You’re not sure what they are.
