Centos7: disable hot corner ( from cli)


Hello All,

I'm installing Centos7 on some 50 laptops.
Previously I used Mate, this time I'm going for the default Gnome.
I would like to be able to disable the hot-corner on these machines.
When I google this I find:
a) a lot of post referring to editing various js-files. That doesn't seem to work anymore on since Gnome3.*
b) al lot of post referring to gnome-tweak-tools and extensions.

But, since I would like to do this on a lot of machines, is there a way to do it from the command line?

Uninstalling it will "disable" it?

Hello,

thanks for the reply.
I have no idea how to uninstall it.
The original idea was to install gnome-classic without " regular" gnome3. Didn't find that eater...

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Greetings, J.

I think I found a solution:

A long road but it will work I think.

You did say "default"

Code:
yum search hot-corners
, or
perhaps
Code:
dnf search sumbitch
?
You don't know the package manager for 50 laptops?

Hello,

I do know the package manager.

$ sudo yum search sumbitch
Geladen plugins: fastestmirror
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
* base: centos.mirror.ate.info
* epel: epel.mirror.nucleus.be
* extras: mirror.plusserver.com
* nux-dextop: mirror.li.nux.ro
* updates: mirror.plusserver.com

Centos7 doesn't use dnf, Fedora does.

The link you provide: installing the extension through Firefox on a remote machine is too slow.
The awk method does not work.
