http://forums.opensuse.org – Hi, Guess this may sound silly... I updated my video driver from the one that camera with OpenSUSE 11.2 to the on on AMD's site and well my desktop has all sorts of wizzy effects, things shimmer, wiggle, etc. It looks impressive :) except that I hate this since it slows me down... So I found a way to turn it off... but my daughter who noticed the new effects found them so cool she wants them. After fiddling with the settings I found some that don't slow me down much except that I still have a problem with the resize behavior. I'd like the resize behavior to work normally. That is that resizing a window would resize the content interactively, as it does with Desktop Effects off. I found the Resize plugin controls. There is even a mode called "Normal" which it is not. So I thought I could just disable the plugin... Well that makes resizing windows impossible... they no longer respond to the resize dragging (even though the cursor still turns into resize arrows). I must have done something wrong... I guess after disabling the Desktop Effects Resize plugin I must enable something else... Does anyone know? Thanks in advance, (Distributions)
