I'm using Cinnamon, but would like to remove all window decorations -- I never use them, they only cost screen estate, and moving / resizing can be conveniently done with alt-mouse1 and alt-mouse2.
Is there a way to achieve this?
I am using Ubuntu 12.04 with a custom ppa providing Cinnamon. I switched from the default Unity/Compiz combo because Compiz in 12.04 is a painful regression, plagued by bugs, compared to the 10.04 version (see for example this bug). I got impatient waiting for correction of this and other bugs. I achieved the desired effect previously and on my 10.04 workstation with Compiz.
However, as I understand it, Cinnamon is using libmuffin, and not Compiz (correct me if I'm wrong).
I am quite happy with the Cinnamon interface, in especially as the effect I got used to (equivalent to the "scale" plugin in Compiz) works without glitches. Also, I would not like to change the distribution, as I got used to Ubuntu and was very happy with the 10.04 LTS. Getting rid of window decorations is the only thing that is still missing.
