or /usr/bin/kwin_x11 does not work. It just freezes the desktop mostly. I can get out with ctrl alt double backspace though. In 13.2 there was an entry for kde 4 kwin in the settings for the window decoration in Trinity but it is not present for plasma 5 in leap. I could put in compiz but kwin worked well and was easy and it seems that a lot of the options are missing or incompatible with each other or just don’t work plugins settings manager etc with compiz.
If i understand you correctly I am trying to run Trinity which is a fork of Kde 3 with the “Kde 5” window manager instead of the TDE (Trinity) window manager because it is an easy way to get the desktop effects. Trinity like Kde 3 does not have them. There seems to be no complete compiz solution. Apparently you are telling me that you don’t think I can do that but I can install the “Kde 4” window manager and use that. Can I install that alongside “Kde 5” or will that cause a conflict?
It’s not a big deal but I like to be able to run a 3d desktop if I want to.
Thanks for the help.
My signature should read:
“I’ve been using Linux for almost ten years now and all I know about the command line is what I’ve copy pasted into it.”
I tried running kwin --replace and that didn’t give me any effects but choosing kwin from the options for the window manager in the Trinity control panel where it now appears has. I still don’t have a way to choose or configure them that I know of though.
well yes you can’t have both kde4 and plasma5 installed at the same time unless you’re using wolfi’s plasma5 packages
well you only need kdebase4-workspace-addons for ksettings and maybe kdebase4-workspace, try installing only those 2
zypper in kdebase4-workspace-addons kdebase4-workspace
