Thread: OpenSuSE 12.3 and GNOME Desktop Effects

    Default OpenSuSE 12.3 and GNOME Desktop Effects

    Hey All,

    Version: OpenSuSE 12.3 (3.7.10-1.1-desktop)

    So I run OpenSuSE 11.4 (*with GNOME Desktop) on my personal laptop (*still a big fan of this version) and I remember being able to disable the Desktop Effects of GNOME, I believe by using the Compiz Config Settings Manager, I think...?

    But I now have 12.3 installed on a Dell PowerEdge Server, with Gnome and GDM as the Window and Display Managers. I did not see the Compiz Config Settings Manager installed on the Server, so I installed it. And it doesn't seem to do anything when I change values set here... Not sure if Compiz works with 12.3 or if it was even the correct thing to try, but thought I'd give it a shot. But no such luck...

    The problem is the desktop runs really slow and there is quite a bit of a delay when typing, dragging windows, opening new windows, etc... Which is making it hard to do the things I need to do. So is there anyway I can disable these Desktop/3D Effects of the GNOME Desktop? I know its not just the server causing the slowness, because if I use a low impact window/display manager like twm or similar, things run at very fast speeds with no delays... But I would like to keep the GNOME Desktop if possible.

    Could anyone tell me how I go about disabling these effects to make things run faster? Any thoughts or suggestions would be much appreciated!

    EDIT: I attached a screenshot from my OpenSuSE 11.4 laptop. It is a screenshot of the Control Center and the apps I used to enable/disable desktop effects...

    Thanks in Advance,
    Matt

    AFAIK Gnome no longer uses Compiz

    Hey, thanks for the reply!

    Ok... Do you know what program, if any, I would use to disable stuff like the desktop effects?

    And is it still called "Desktop Effects", or does it go by a different name now?

    Thanks,
    Matt
