I'm using the LXQT spin in Kwin mode (it gives users this option out of the box now, no extra packages needed.)

Performance is excellent and although I like to have a compositor in regards to stopping tearing etc. I don't want the animations.

My /home/user/.config/kwinrc file has the following to stop resizing animations but it still has the rest (menu fading etc.)

[Plugins]
kwin4_effect_maximizeEnabled=false
minimizeanimationEnabled=false

Do I have to install the whole kde-desktop group just to get a GUI editor for these options?

What is the kwinrc option to disable all animations (but not all compositing)?

( I'm guessing it's something like kwin4effectallEnabled=false and animationEnabled=false , but I can't find anywhere listing of all the options.)

Turns out you can just install plasma-systemsettings which is only 4MB. Awesome.

After turning of all effects (but not all compositing which will stop GPU acceleration and cause tearing ) the following is in my /home/user/.config/kwinrc file.

[Plugins]
blurEnabled=false
colorpickerEnabled=false
contrastEnabled=false
cubeslideEnabled=false
desktopchangeosdEnabled=false
desktopgridEnabled=false
highlightwindowEnabled=false
kscreenEnabled=false
kwin4_effect_dialogparentEnabled=false
kwin4_effect_fadeEnabled=false
kwin4_effect_fadedesktopEnabled=false
kwin4_effect_frozenappEnabled=false
kwin4_effect_loginEnabled=false
kwin4_effect_logoutEnabled=false
kwin4_effect_maximizeEnabled=false
kwin4_effect_morphingpopupsEnabled=false
kwin4_effect_windowapertureEnabled=false
minimizeanimationEnabled=false
presentwindowsEnabled=false
screenedgeEnabled=false
screenshotEnabled=false
slideEnabled=true
slidingpopupsEnabled=false
startupfeedbackEnabled=false
wobblywindowsEnabled=false
zoomEnabled=false
