SOLVED Mint 4/Compiz burning windows effect?

Postby 67GTA » Sat Nov 24, 2007 2:08 pm

I can't find the option to make windows burn up when closed in Daryna. Is it an option with Compiz Fusion? I remember seeing it in Beryl with past versions of Mint.

yes it is via compiz, first if you have not allready install "compizconfig-settings-manager" via synaptic, then in prefences you will have "Advanced Desktop Effects" then animations on there and you can select whatever animation you want from there then.

I've already installed compizconfig-settings-manager, but I couldn't find any specific settings for the burning windows. Is it hidden somewhere?

In CCSM, go to Effects>Animations>Close Animation.

I got it now. I unchecked everything except burn in the random section. I finally figured out to change the current animation at the top to burn.

Great. I'm partial to the random color setting.

I will have to play around with it some more. This is the first time I have used Compiz. I just always thought the burning windows trick looked cool.
