Description Rodney Gedda 2008-07-28 04:22:07 UTC
Version:           4.1 RC 1 (using KDE 4.0.98)
Installed from:    Ubuntu Packages
OS:                Linux

When resizing windows with the Wobbly Windows desktop effect turned ON the resize motion (using the mouse/touchpad) is very choppy and doesn't look good at all.

The window is being "wobbled" during the resize, but the result is a really bad, choppy render.

During the motion the window also looks like it's flickering out of control as if something is a miss.

My "wobblyness" is set to about 75% on the scale. Try it for yourself and see.

Should be an option to enable only during movement or resize. It's only choppy on drivers that have slow resizing, this would be a good work-around in the meantime.

oh.. i see.. disabling while resizing should be the solution..  this is more like a workaround..  why not doing this like compiz?
