[SOLVED] How to disable launch feedback (icon bursting out, not the cursor) in KDE


Hi,

I'm using Pardus 2008. I must say that I like every aspect of it, including a small footprint and responsive desktop.

However, i have one small problem with its KDE desktop. Everytime i launch a program or open a directory by clicking on an icon, the window is not opened until it finishes bursting out. Thus, I can open a window faster from the menu or any way other than clicking on the icons on desktop or the shortcuts on the panel.

In case im not making it clear, the effect looks like this one on KDE-look: http://www.kde-look.org/content/show...?content=52994

I did search for settings and googled around, but couldnt find the solution. Can you guys help me out? THank you very much

Please try this first : Open Control Center (kcontrol)
>> Appearance & Themes > Launch Feedback .. and change
"Bounching Cursor" to "No Busy Cursor"

This function is not handling "cursor" but "icon" ,
it's just an old miss spell, never corrected.

If this is KDE-3.5.x you should not have any errors,
KDE-4 : unstability to be expected.

Another thing to try if you still have errors, is to
delete /home/'user'/.kde . This will reset all
configuration files by restart of X.

Good Luck !

Thank you very much. I tried choosing "No busy cursor" there but it didn't disable the effect.

Btw, I noticed that the effect here in Pardus looks a bit different than that in Kubuntu. It enlarges slower. Could this be Pardus specific? lol.

The Pardus forum, they don't speak English, omg.

OMG i guess it's something that was compiled into KDE. I even tried deleting all the .* directories in my home but it didnt work.
