how to drag a window without the outline in gnome


I'm using Ubuntu 10.10 with Gnome 2.30.2 desktop environment. When I drag a window it only shows the outline of the window while doing that. How can I change the settings so that not just the outline but the whole window still shows while I'm dragging it.

Thanks in advance.

Also feel free to give me any tips on making my desktop look cool

Run gconf-editor.

navigate to:
apps->metacity->general

check reduced_resources.

This worked last time I used gnome a few years ago.

It seems to only work while I'm moving the window. How can I do the same while resizing the window?

You need to use the Compiz Config Settings Manager(ccsm).
Change the default resize mode to normal.

I'm not sure if your version comes with ccsm or not.
