Description Christoph Feck 2009-11-26 05:30:03 UTC
Version:           1.0 (using 4.3.77 (KDE 4.3.77 (KDE 4.4 >= 20091123)), compiled sources)
Compiler:          gcc
OS:                Linux (i686) release

In Appearance/Style, there is an option to fine-tune graphical effects. The options presented here, however, are confusing, e.g. it is unclear what effect may need a "high display resolution".

It should be replaced by something that was in KDE3: A slider to enable more effects, with the option to configure effects separately.

Also, I was not able to disable all animations, e.g. new ones on the taskbar using this option.

+1 from me.
arcane options like the ones in the dropdown desperately need humand understandable explanations.
and, probably like the op, i hat most of those "effects" and prefer to simply disable them -- which _i_ thought,
Desktop->Desktop Effects
was supposed to do. 
so, here's another question: how are these two related and why aren't they put together in a "get rid of resource hogging eye candy" section or so?

a check-box to Enable/Disable effects is preferred..

Comment 7 rockonthemoonfm 2013-06-25 20:46:19 UTC
will a tiny checkbox make it for 4.11?
Comment 8 Ryan P.C. McQuen 2014-02-28 23:29:39 UTC
I was about to file a bug before finding this, is an enable/disable in the works?
Comment 9 David Edmundson 2015-01-21 20:29:32 UTC
This combo box got removed in Plasma 5
The confusing entries are therefore gone
