I currently run F32 WS with Gnome. However, this has been a problem for me back through several prior versions of Fedora WS with Gnome.
Every time my mouse cursor hovers over any sort of link, button, or icon, in any application, a black popup box appears telling me all about the link, button, or icon. I don’t want or need these and they usually pop up over something I’m trying to read.
I’ve grepped the schemas to see if there is a key I can set to turn them off, but was not successful. Can someone please tell me how I can turn these popups off?
As I re-read this post I see that I should have written more.
I did find several keys in the schemas that are for controlling pop-ups, but according the “description” text with these keys there do not seem to be any that control these link description pop-ups. Have I missed something? Is there some other way to turn off these link description pop-ups?
This is reproducible on lots of applications. For instance open nautilus and place the mouse cursor over any of the directories in the side bar. For instance (Documents) and a pop-up box will appear that says “/home/user/Documents”. Open Text Editor and place the mouse cursor over arrow on the Open button. You’ll get a pop-up that says “Open a recently used file”.
