Since Sunday's night updates to -current, KDE 4.11 has been running very well and I've been using it far longer than I normally do when a new version is released. Used it most of yesterday and felt very tired by the time I turned off the computer. This morning I was up early and in two and a half hours my eyes were so tired I felt like taking a nap.
That "glassy look" takes it toll on the eyes.
Is there anyway to turn that off?
The Xfce desktop is much easier on the eyes.

I suffer from eye strain myself and what has helped me recently, after getting a new monitor, is making sure the brightness and contrast are calibrated correctly (there are webpages that have calibration images), setting the refresh rate as high as it will go, and running X at 120 dpi resolution rather than the default.
Dont know if any of that might make a difference for you, good luck
The shadow effects are part of the problem and contribute to the "blurry look." However, turning off the shadow effects must be one of those things that is so obvious, I missed it, as I've never found the "switch."
