KDE Disappointed with KDE 4's performance and other shortcomings, Timothy Pearson continued KDE 3.5 development under the name Trinity. Today the first third major update of the Trinity Desktop Environment is released, providing an alternative upgrade path for KDE users who do not feel comfortable with KDE 4.

Offer to Help Configuring Your KWin

Hey Thom,

reading your post it seems like you have some configuration issues with your KWin installation. I can offer you to help finding the perfect settings, so that also you get to the point where KWin works for you at least as fast as any other OpenGL compositor. If KWin runs smoothly on Tegra (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L5-setgsIfY) it has to work on your system, too :-)

Feel free to send me a mail with your system specs (glxinfo, which effects enabled, all compositing related settings, which Qt graphicssystem) and I will provide you a recommendation tailored for your GPU.

There is just one thing: if you do not yet use at least KWin 4.7.2 update ASAP and test whether there is still a need for fine tuning.

Kind Regards
Martin Gräßlin
KWin Maintainer
