By default, the transition from one virtual desktop to another one under GNOME2 in Ubuntu 11.04 is visualized with a sliding animation. How can I turn that animation off?

Haven't got a full answer; you need to install Compiz settings manager, the settings will be in the desktop category –  danjjl Aug 25 '11 at 8:59
    
@danjjl Thanks - if you make that a real answer, I'll tick it off as correct. Please add that in CCSM, the setting is under Desktop/Desktop Wall/Viewport switching/Wall sliding duration. –  Thomas Aug 25 '11 at 9:31

To change the animation you will need CompizConfig settings manager (you can install it through the Ubuntu Software Center)

Open CompizConfig settings manager.

Under Desktop -> Desktop Wall -> Viewport switching set Wall sliding duration to 0.
