One of the things I really liked about 11.04 was how I could make the Launcher only show when I moved the mouse to a corner. In 11.10 Unity-2D the Launcher shows every time my mouse goes against the left edge of the screen--this results in the Launcher always sliding out when I don't want it to.

I tried installing CCSM but it appears not to work with Unity-2D. And, although I find it hard to believe that no such setting exists, I can find no setting that will disable the left-edge trigger.

Is there a way to move the trigger to the bottom-left corner or even disable the trigger completely? I'd actually prefer to just press the Super key and access the Launcher that way.

    Unity 2D is not built over Compiz, so CCSM won't work – Manish Sinha Oct 22 '11 at 20:42

Sorry, afaik that is not possible. There are some (very limited) options about the hiding mode of the launcher in the dconf-editor (->com->canonical->unity-2D->launcher).

  • never hide; the launcher is always visible. [...]

  • auto hide; the launcher will disappear after a short time if the user is not interacting with it

  • intellihide; the launcher will disappear if a window is placed on top of it and if the user is not interacting with it
