Thread: Need help disabling "shattering glass" windows special fx

    Default Need help disabling "shattering glass" windows special fx

    A few months ago, I installed OpenSuSe 11.0 on my laptop. Works great, but somehow I managed to turn on some really annoying desktop / windows special effects that makes every window that I open / close / iconify look as though it is is a pane of glass shattering. It was amusing for about a day, but I don't remember how I turned it on and can't seem to find out how to disable it (even though I googled for it and searched this forum).

    I tried to disable this special effect via both Applications->Utilities->Desktop->CompizConfig Settings Manager and "Desktop Effects" and "Configuration Settings" and Yast2, but can't seem to find out how to turn this "feature" off.

    Please help before I have to resort to re-installing the OS. I'm even willing to edit config files, if required.

    Thanks in advance,
    -kevin wall

    Guess I should have said this was only if the session was using KDE4. Not a
    problem if I use Gnome.

    Tried that. Discovered it shortly after I posted it.
    Unfortunately that did NOT work, even after a reboot.

    What did work, is I executed:

    "cd; rm -fr .gconf .gconfd .gnome2 .gnome2_private"

    and re-logged in using Gnome. Should have responded sooner; sorry.
