There are currently several bug reports/wish to add an "enable/disable
animations" option in oxygen decoration configuration dialog for kde4.4
because these animations significantly affect kwin performances for some
graphics cards (not mine). See e.g.:
I added such an option in trunk, but backporting it in kde4.4 violates
Aaron suggested that instead of violating string freeze one uses the
settings "Graphical Effects" (in systemsettings->appearance->style->fine
tunning). But as Martin (Graesslin) pointed out this is not satisfactory
since the performances drop also have been observed in some High
performance CPU/GPU (e.g. NVIDIA).
This to say, I'd really like to commit this simple "enable animations"
option addition, especially since the exact same string already exists
(in kde4.4) for oxygen style.
Is there any objection against this ? What's the procedure ?
I guess I can wait for e.g. one week for serious objections (notably
from translators) against doing the above, and if none shows up, I'd
Does that work ?
