I found this tip to speed up the menu popup in Ubuntu 9.10, Linux Mint.

By default there is a slight delay for menus. To change this follow these steps:

Open up a terminal window.
Enter nano ~/ .gtkrc-2.0
Add s single line gtk-menu-popup-delay = 0
Save that file
Log out and log in
You should now notice no delay in your menu popup speed.
Okay, I got that far, but how do I save that file? When I was going to simply exit, it told me that this would be lost because a process was still running.

Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated. 3 seconds is 3 seconds many times over. :eek: :D

Thanks,

xico

I suppose you can always boot up another Linux Live CD, mount the Linux partition in question and edit the file.

Hi xico,

Try the following commands:
[email protected]:~$ nano .gtkrc-2.0
and when in the nano editor, highlight the string "gtk-menu-popup-delay = 0" with your cursor, and copy/paste it into the nano editor window (use right-click), then use CTRL-o to write the single line to the file .gtkrc-2.0, and then CTRL-x to exit the nano editor.

Then log out and log in.

Follow the nano editor turorial.
