Delay when maximising windows (Gnome)

Using gnome I love the desktop effects, except the ‘maximize window’ effect. There is an annoying delay when I maximize a window.

Is there a way to turn this particular effect off, while leaving all the others on.

I looked in control center>desktop effects, but the option is not there. The only way I could turn off the maximize effect was unchecking the “enable desktop effects” checkbox. But this turns all effects off.

All other effects run smooth and snappy.


You need to run CompizConfig Settings Manager, it’s in the main menu
system which gives access to all the compiz features, you might also
look at installing the compiz extras as well :wink:

I have looked in CompizConfig Settings Manager, but I just can’t find the option to turn maximize off.

Oh, I forgot to mention in my post that I am very new to openSUSE.

I installed the compiz extras by:

>zypper install compiz-fusion-plugins-extra

But I didnt see many cool extra options in the CompizConfig Settings Manager. So I uninstalled it. Maybe I got the wrong one?

Anyways, there are so many options, please help me find it!


Can anyones shed some light on this. Maximising windows is something I do quite often when using my computer.

I’ve searched for hours trying to find that ****ed option!
