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

    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,

    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.

    -- Tom
