    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.
