In 11.04 I used the unity-preferences tool (called menu and launcher in the the dash I believe) to set Unity to only reveal when the mouse was moved to the upper corner. I liked this method better as there was less of a chance of accidentally opening the launcher.
Now in 11.10 unity-preferences is gone, and the corner no longer opens up the launcher. That's fine, but now the launcher won't open at all. I can't hover over the edge of the screen to open the launcher. I'm guessing something is still respecting the "corner only" launch option I had set previously, but the new window controls are preventing that from triggering the launcher. And now that unity-preferences has been removed, I have no way to set it back.
I looked through all of the settings for unity in gconf, but couldn't find anything pertaining to this specific setting, only the compiz only settings.
Does anyone know where the old unity-preferences tool stored its setting? Or could this be a different issue?
