It seems that the KDE folk upstream have made available a replacement for the desktop cube effect.
I'm told it's at https://github.com/zzag/kwin-effects-cube.git, but building it for openSUSE is beyond my skills. Is there any chance that it might be packaged and distributed for Leap and Tumbleweed as an add-on??
at least for Tumbleweed it might work. But I do not give any guarantee. You can try it from here: https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/ecsos/openSUSE_Tumbleweed Then please give me feedback if it works. I have Tumbleweed only in a VM and if it works there I am not so sure.
Thank you. Progress!
I've applied it in Tumbleweed (on iron). Though I've yet to test it thoroughly, I'm happy to say that it works in Plasma (X11) but less well in Plasma (Wayland). The problem in Wayland is that after I invoke the toggle Ctrl-F11 and select a face of the cube, a right-click on the desktop does nothing at all - no menu or other response. X11 is OK in that regard; Wayland isn't.
Other than that, is it correct to assume that the only way of invoking the cube is the Ctrl-F11 toggle? That is, where it was possible with the original to invoke cube animation simply by clicking on one of the faces in the pager, or by way of keyboard shortcut, that facility no longer exists?
OK; just to follow up, I took the plunge and downloaded your .rpm and installed it in Leap 15.4 from a local folder with yast. And it worked, at least under X11 (I can't test it under Wayland because I've not been able to get Wayland to run in Leap 15.4 on this machine).
The only difference I can see from the package under Tumbleweed is a different toggle key combination. Ctrl-F11 in TW; Meta-C in Leap.
