How to open Ubuntu unity dash when hitting the top-left corner of the screen(i am working on Ubuntu 11.10), Just like in Gnome-shell(i love this feature). using compiz or anything else.

  • @fossfreedom I don't see how. OP want's the dash to pop up. The other question is talking about the launcher. – Kris Harper Nov 12 '11 at 14:25

  1. Install xmacro.
  2. Install compizconfig-settings-manager.
  3. Open ccsm and click the Commands button (not the tick in front of it).
  4. Go to the Commands tab and copy-paste this line into an empty box: echo “KeyStrPress Super_L KeyStrRelease Super_L”| xmacroplay -d 1 :0.0 &> /dev/null.
  5. Go to the Edge bindings tab and click the button labeled None next to the corresponding command number.

That should've done the trick.

  • Now working when reading source topic, i install xdotool and write the command xdotool key Super_L instead of the long one – Black Block Nov 12 '11 at 17:16
