This tip was seen in the OLPC News Forum posted by the user "vasqued2". I found it very useful so I'm posting it here.

This modification to the OLPC code will disable the automatic appearance of the frame when you move your mouse to the 4 hot corners of the screen.

Once you make this modification, you'll need to press the Home button (circle with Dot) to show the frame and home view.

Comment out (add a # in the first column) lines 56 & 57 of the following file:

/usr/share/sugar/shell/view/frame/eventarea.py

After the change, they should look like this:

Code: Select all
#        invisible.connect('enter-notify-event', self._enter_notify_cb)
#        invisible.connect('leave-notify-event', self._leave_notify_cb)

You'll need to a terminal session as root to make this change.
