Thread: Adding effects to kwin - possible?

    Default Adding effects to kwin - possible?

    Hi All,

    Does anyone know how to add effects to KWin?
    I want the "sliding windows" effect for the alt-tab behaviour. I know this effect exists, I use it in another distro but opensuse 12.1 doesn't seem to have it.
    By the way, it's the coolest-looking alt-tab effect by far (IMO).

    TIA

    Do you mean Flip Switch? The one that uses the Alt & Tab? It's in there, if thats' what you mean.

    No, that's not it.
    What I mean is this: Alt-Tab with KDE 4.6 - YouTube
    I think it's called "Sliding windows" in another distro.

    I use this all the time it is in (sorry have to translate from german)
    system settings -> desktop effects -> effect for changing windows -> 3d
    windows galery (I hope you can somehow map that to what it is really
    called in english KDE)
