Bug Description

Binary package hint: compiz

From a design point of view, some people may want to disable annoying tooltip from the decorator bar.

I propose here a patch to command that behavior depending on /desktop/gnome/interface/hide_decorator_tooltip gconf key. TRUE will hide them. FALSE or no value/key will fall to default behavior showing a tooltip

This honestly seems worthless. Perhaps you should give a bit more detail on what you want and why.

I do not understand the tooltip in decorator bar nomenclature. For example, /desktop/ does not exist in my 10.04 Ubuntu. So I cannot find out if it is true or false. I am willing to learn but have found no way so far.
