How can I change the Unity launcher delay?

although I have seen similar questions and the hint to change it in ccsm under general options, I find it still taking way to long. I have set the Edge Trigger Delay value to zero and still I have to wait over a second to make the launcher pop up. I can't believe that this really can't be speeded up so I am asking here. I don't want go back to using docky instead just of that little thing.

Workaround for "absolute zero" delay

1) We will need XDoTool and Compiz.

You can install these from the Ubuntu Software Center or by clicking here (xdotool) and here (Compiz)

2) Open Compiz (Alt + F2 and type ccsm and hit Enter)

3) Go to Commands and add xdotool key super to one command


4) Then go to Edge Bindings and choose Left.
