Yet Another Magic Lamp
Yet Another Magic Lamp is a window minimization effect for KWin. Whenever a window is minimized, it'll get sucked down into the dock/panel. The main difference between this effect and the one shipped with KWin is that this effect is more "curvy". In addition to that, this effect works correctly with weird setups (e.g. the panel is between screens) and has more configuration options.
This is mostly eye-candy stuff. If you want to be more productive, consider using another window minimize animation (e.g. Scale, etc).
On openSUSE Tumbleweed
sudo zypper ar obs://home:trmdi trmdi sudo zypper in -r trmdi kwin-effects-yaml
Build from source
You will need the following dependencies to build this effect:
- any C++14 enabled compiler
- KDE Frameworks 5:
- Extra CMake Modules
On Arch Linux
sudo pacman -S cmake extra-cmake-modules kwin
sudo dnf install cmake extra-cmake-modules kf5-kconfig-devel \ kf5-kcoreaddons-devel kf5-kwindowsystem-devel kwin-devel \ qt5-qtbase-devel libepoxy-devel kf5-kconfigwidgets-devel
sudo apt install cmake extra-cmake-modules kwin-dev \ libkf5config-dev libkf5configwidgets-dev libkf5coreaddons-dev \ libkf5windowsystem-dev qtbase5-dev
After you installed all the required dependencies, you can build the effect:
git clone https://github.com/zzag/kwin-effects-yet-another-magic-lamp.git cd kwin-effects-yet-another-magic-lamp mkdir build && cd build cmake .. \ -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release \ -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr make sudo make install
Using the effect
Go to System Settings > Desktop Behavior > Desktop Effects, and select "Yet Another Magic Lamp", then click Apply.
Any help is welcome. If you have suggestions how to improve this effect(e.g. different duration for each stage of the animation, etc), please create a new issue. If you'd like to contribute by implementing some feature, make sure you've run clang-format before creating a PR.
