**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,
