[SOLVED] Slow “magic lamp” and “minimize” animations on KDE 4.4

So after updating to KDE 4.4 i noticed that the “magic lamp” and “minimize” animations were slower on my machine (with Nvidia GeForce 7900, proprietary module).

After searching what was going out, i found out the reason: the “fade in/fade out” title animation of the new oxygen kwin style. I searched for a way to turn it off on the configuration dialog without success.

So, what i did was to edit ~/.kde4/share/config/oxygenrc and add the line:

Code:

AnimationsDuration=0

inside the

Code:

[Windeco]

section. Now the fade effect is immediate and so it will not interfere with the “magic lamp” and “minimize” animations. Please note that it’s recommended that you change the kwin style before making the changes inside oxygenrc. Then change your windeco to “oxygen” again.

I hope this will be helpful to someone.
