Add animations/effects when opening or closing menus, windows and dialogs


Description ale.carrazzoni 2012-12-02 04:45:13 CET
Just a small feature request. When compositing is activated it would be nice to have some simple fading effects or animation when menus, windows and dialogs are being opened or closed.

I'd like to add a "me too" to this enhancement request. I am presently using compiz with xfce4 for this reason but would prefer to stick with xfwm4.  Fading windows on maximize/minimize are really the only plugin I need with compiz so its a bit of a waste running it.  I feel that  the fading windows add a touch of subtle class to the desktop experience, though I am not in favor generally of "eye candy".

I fail to find the patch attached.

Please provide patches, attach them here for review.

Tracking changes on another git repo isn't convenient.
Comment 4 Olivier Fourdan editbugs 2013-03-11 21:16:28 CET
Note, title-less maximization is already covered by EWMH, so this needs to be implemented via the standard, making it an unconditional option in not the right way to add this feature.

1. add support for EWMH standard for borderless maximization
2. make sure it's not just the title, but border as we'll (ie there is already an option to show or hide borders on maximization, make sure this work in any case)
3. once the feature supports the standard, we can add a user option to set the default behaviour, for apps that don't specify their desired maximization mode via the standard.
