Description Elias Probst 2009-02-19 00:59:18 UTC
Version:            (using KDE 4.2.0)
Installed from:    Gentoo Packages

I've installed KDE4.2.0 on my Samsung NC10 Netbook which as a resolution of 1024x600.

The 'Cover switch' effect cuts the windows on the left/right edge instead of placing them in a way to make them completely visible.

The screenshot was done using the default settings.

Changing the zoom level in the settings of this effect didn't change this problem - the amount of the cut-off at the left/right edge was staying the same.

The effect should always place the windows in a way to make them completely visible.

[windowswitchers] QML replacement for flipswitch and coverswitch

Rewrite of the flipswitch and coverswitch window switchers in QMl,
using the KWin Tabbox API and PathView to layout the thumbnails.

The use of common Plasma components, following the user's theme,
and lack of reflections gives the effects a more modern (breezy) look,
consistent with the user's desktop and the other tabswitchers.
