There are many sites offering bad advice for removing menu delay (as I did), e.g. http://lifehacker.com/software/linux…enu-269934.php.
These sites tell you to create ~/.gtkrc-2.0 and then add ‘gtk-menu-popup-delay = 0″| tee -a .gtkrc-2.0’. That’s wrong.
It should be either:
* create file ~/.gtkrc-2.0 and add ‘gtk-menu-popup-delay = 0’
* run in terminal ‘echo “gtk-menu-popup-delay = 0″| tee -a .gtkrc-2.0’
Either delete ~/.gtkrc-2.0 and do one of the two methods above, or edit the file as needed.
You’ll know if you’ve done it the wrong way if you get this error message:
error: scanner: unterminated string constant – e.g. `style’
Thanks to Wesley and David_1cog for pointing this out.
