Comment 4 Alexandre Bonneau 2018-10-19 21:04:05 UTC
This is still unresolved in 5.13.5-1; there are still no previews shown when switching desktop using the 'slide' effect.
Comment 5 Martin Flöser 2018-10-20 05:10:31 UTC
Please don't reopen unrelated bugs.
Comment 6 Alexandre Bonneau 2018-10-20 07:51:50 UTC
Well, you marked bug https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=297139 as a duplicated of this one, therefore I have difficulties seeing how this is not related.

Does Kwin display miniatures of windows as desktop indicators when switching desktops? Did I miss something?

If not, either reopen this bug, and remove the faulty duplicate resolution from my initial report.
Comment 7 Martin Flöser 2018-10-20 11:10:26 UTC
These bug reports are five to six years old. We won't touch them any more and it doesn't make any sense to look at them - too much changed.

We have the functionality in walk through desktops to show previews of the desktops.
