pereira.alex added a comment to D11976: Change/improve default settings of glide effect.

The idea how the glide effect was implemented is to have this angle. The defaults have not been changed since the effect got introduced.

As this is an effect not enabled by default I do not see the need to change any default settings.

As you work through this, can you please also upload videos to understand the changes visually too?

Tilt nowadays may be too much wobbly , and being default the user might be put off immediatly. Btw tilt was not one of the original purposes of Glide. At least not when I developed it.

So, it has nothing to do with http://wiki.compiz.org/Plugins/Animation#Glide_1 ?

Why another patch? Because it's settings related, you could change animation duration in D11976.

It was to be similar to scale effect, but scale effect only "appears", doesnt animate closing. Also with the purpose to "appear from below" or "appear from above" to be configurable. I actually never used it as "rotation of windows"!

-1, sorry. (please notice that I'm not a member of KWin so you shouldn't worry what I think ;-)

Having tilt is one of the purposes(or key components) of the glide effect. IIRC Glide 1 from Compiz also has some angle.

glide effect to remove the angle and appear from above and disappear to below

I thought that was the point of the glide effect.

With these new params it looks pretty much like scale effect.

As the initial author of the glide effect ( then code was cleaned and improved by the kwin team ), there was something I should have done at the time : Change the defaults !
I never really planned it to be like in the default manner.

pereira.alex added a comment to T7911: Kubuntu should install PowerTOP and TLP and turn them on during installation : Publicity & Testing needed; re-evaluate for 18.10.

I am new here, hope i am not out of order by replying here but using TLP before made my desktop computer freeze randomly from time to time. It was quite a hard to figure out it was TLP's fault because it was quite random ( it seems it was a problem between TLP and ssd disk ).
