How to make QDialogs movable in Gnome 3

$ su -c "yum install gconf-editor"

Press Alt+F2 and enter 'gconf-editor' to open it.

Desktop > Gnome > Shell > Windows (attach_modal_dialogs = false)

Type 'r' in Alt+F2 prompt to restart Gnome shell and see the changes.

In Fedora 17 there is no "shell > windows" configuration, so the alternative is:

$ gsettings set attach-modal-dialogs "false"
