Ubuntu Unity/Compiz disable workspace switching animation

Disabling the horrible compiz workspace switching animation in Ubuntu precise is doable, if not particularly easy:
sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager
  • Open Unity dash > type "compiz" > run "CompizConfig Settings Manager"
  • on the right panel click on Desktop Wall
  • in the Viewport Switching tab set "Wall Sliding Duration" to 0
  • in the Viewport Switch Preview set "Switch Target Preview Visibility Time" to 0
