Hi, i'm not sure this iis the right section. i had this bug:


When i try to move windows to border for changing face of 3d cube the animation not work and stop like the image. When release mouse button the windows return to the same face of cube.

2. move to border

sounds a bit like bug #299869
can you "kcmshell4 kwincompositing" and uncheck opengl2 shaders in the 3rd tab?
does the issue remain afterwards?
Comment 3 Meconio 2012-05-13 16:32:03 UTC

I've found the problem:


This option conflicts.

If you enable "Start animation when move windows to edge" in "Desktop effects" but you don't enable Change desktop on screen edge from another panel the animation stops in the middle.

I've kde in italian the section name probably isn't correct in english i hope screenshot help you.

Only start animating in cube slide on window move if core uses switch desktop on edge

For this new KWinOptions are exposed to query whether core uses switch on
desktop on move or always.
