Ubuntu – Faster app menu in Ubuntu 18.04

18.04animationsappmenugnome-shell

I just installed Ubuntu 18.04 and one of my first negative impressions is the long animation of flying-in icons when opening the app menu.

Can I speed this up or disable it?

Best Answer

Yes, it is possible.

This link shows you how

The link shows you how to turn off all kind of animations especially the spreading icons on menu, searching, and window animations so you can work faster. To do it, just run this command:

$ gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface enable-animations false

Then apply it by pressing Alt+F2 and type r and press Enter. This will reset the GNOME Shell to follow your command.

To revert it back (enable animation again), just change the command to:

$ gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface enable-animations true
