I’m an Ubuntu Noob. Started with 11.10 a month ago. CCSM killed my system too. I barely had it open. I had to delete the ~/.config folder from another window manager to restore Unity. I already found out how to disable the global menu. Now I want to do 3 more things:
1. Stop unity from docking my apps to the top left corner of the screen.
2. Turn off the screen hotspots (corners and edges).
3. Stop that maximize thing when your apps fill up alot of your screen. HEY UBUNTU! …. NOT ALL OF US USE NETBOOKS!!!! I have a 23″ monitor and this is a total pain … especially in the neck!

Can I do this WITHOUT CCSM? All I can find on the web is how to use CCSM.
