Documentation video of KWin effects

completed by: Benjamin Kaiser

mentors: Martin Gräßlin

Create a short video for the following KWin effects (one video per effect):

  • Sliding Popups
  • Dim Inactive
  • Dim Screen Administration mode

For this video an up-to-date version of the kde-workspaces should be used (e.g. Kubuntu 13.10). These effects require OpenGL - this means a virtual machine might not be enough. The video should be recorded without any audio, using as many KDE default settings as possible and should only feature KDE applications. Selected User Interface language should be English.

The sliding popups effect is best demonstrated by an empty desktop (no windows) and opening/closing the kickoff menu. For dim screen administration mode one needs to have a setting which requires root access. An example would be changing the date/time settings
