If you want to make Gnome menus Faster in Ubuntu follow this procedure

You need to Edit the file /home/your_user_name/.gtkrc-2.0 file

$gedit /home/your_user_name/.gtkrc-2.0

add the following line

gtk-menu-popup-delay = 100


gtk-menu-popup-delay = 0

100 for 100 ms

0 for 0 ms

Save and exit the file.


echo "gtk-menu-popup-delay = 0″ >> ~/.gtkrc-2.0

Now you need to Log off and log back in.

You can also try to get the icons cached in memory at startup

echo "find /usr/share/pixmaps/ | xargs cat > /dev/null" >> ~/mystart

echo "find /usr/share/icons/Human/ | xargs cat > /dev/null" >> ~/mystart

chmod +x ~/mystart

Then add it as startup to gnome (System -> Settings -> Sessions -> Add, and write "~/mystart")
