You can use this Gnome Shell extension called CustomCorner.

It doesn't fully replace all options one had with compiz, but it's a start.

enter image description here


Open terminal: Ctrl + Alt + T

gsettings set org.gnome.shell enable-hot-corners true

It's that simple!

    This works but how do I configure the actions for the corners? May 7, 2018 at 7:59
  • @AlbinStigo Could you explain a little bit more? May 7, 2018 at 15:49
  • @AlbinStigo the point is that you explained only how to enable the hot corners, but how to configure them? e.g. how can I associated a certain action to a certain corner? May 22, 2018 at 15:00
  • use gnome extension extensions.gnome.org/extension/1037/customcorner May 25, 2018 at 15:58
  • This answer only lets you enable (or disable) the Activities overview hot corner, doesn't really help you achieve what the question asks for. For that purpose your last comment is useful, but that is already mentioned in the answer by @joschi.
