I can assure you its on by default here. Because when I switched to
oxygen a week or so ago, my konsole suddenly had animated tabs and I
didn't use or configure oxygen on this machine ever since it was

I can also see where this is coming from: Even though the gui says "Tab
Animations" its actually stored as StackWidgetAnimation and that one is
on by default in oxygen.kcfg. So either you wanted to separate tab and
stacked widgets (and I don't see why animations should be shown on
either) or the naming is just bad :)


You're at the end of the road again.
