In Ubuntu 12.04~13.10, the Settings >> Display >> Sticky Edges [On/Off] option was available. In Ubuntu 14.10, it is missing. How do I disable Mouse Edge Stickiness so that when I move my mouse from the left monitor to the right monitor, it doesn’t STICK to the edge, in Ubuntu 14.04?*

As suggested below, I tried using unity-tweak-tool, but could not locate the Mouse Edge Stickiness option. Any guidance is appreciated.

Once again, Thank you, as this will help my carpal tunnel syndrome! Thank you!

I did sudo apt-get install -y unity-tweak-tool; unity-tweak-tool; >> And looked through all of the options but I could not find out where to disable Mouse Edge Stickiness. Can you please tell me where? –  Bran May 8 '14 at 4:00
Windows, There should be a picture of your desktop and a bunch of options all around with colored corners. The colored corners/ edges represent your hot spots for the sticky edges. There are bars on the side of each hotspot to select the prefered action, there should be "do nothing" as an option –  Deim May 9 '14 at 13:48
