Ubuntu Auto Maximize

I upgraded to Ubuntu 10.04 LTS and I am loving it.  One of the things that never really bothered me when I was using the 10 inch screen on the netbook was the “feature” to auto-maximize every window.  Now that i am using it on a large display – it was driving me bonkers.


If you find yourself needing to turn off the auto-maximize feature, here is how:


1. Press Alt + F2 to bring up the Run Application dialog box

2. Type “gconf-editor” without the quotes and press run

That will bring up your Configuration Editor


3. Hit the + beside Apps

4. Scroll down and click on Maximus 

5. Check the box next to “no_maximize”

Then close the Configuration Editor.
