A beginner or not deep into-it user will not find the optimal configuration
It should be easy to program some easy tool ...
And a really big plus using Gentoo: USE flag -semantic-desktop
Also other software packages not maintained any more but just bad running:
These should go back second queue....
... it is possible to configure a Kde desktop to the best available gui available with Linux ...
there's an old saying in valencia
you can polish a turd all you want
... it's still going to be a turd...
y'know what's sad about kde? it made the best linux burner look like vomit... it's still pretty good tho
I was just a little confused, why they go back to 4.1
Ubuntu 12.10's compiz does it fine out of the box, absolutely no tearing anywhere on IB or SB. You can get no tearing on 12.04's compiz by going into compiz config and enabling "force fullscreen redraws (buffer swap) on repaint".
You can get no tearing anywhere in gnome-shell/mutter, cinnamon/muffin, and pantheon/gala by adding CLUTTER_PAINT=disable-clipped-redraws:disable-culling to /etc/environment (there's an active bug report on this for mutter and there's already a patch in git I believe so it should be fixed out of the box in a future release).
kwin is the only compositor I've used that both has this bug and doesn't have an easy workaround which is why its a dealbreaker for me right now. mutter has the same bug but at least there's an easy workaround for it. Not sure about XBMC, but I assume you have the issue there because its not using any compositing and therefore not pageflipping.

Has Klook been implemented in dolphin yet? I remember seeing it in the feature plan for KDE 4.10 but it was still labelled as todo.
