Ubuntu: How to deactivate all the desktop effects of KDE permanently?


I am aware that the shortcode of "Shift + Alt + F12" disables all the desktop effects of Kubuntu 15.10. However, is there a way to disable all those effects automatically and permanently in every future session?

Objective: Speeding up Kubuntu 15.10 as much as possible.


Head to

System Settings > Hardware > Display and Monitor > Compositor  

Remove âœ" mark from Enable compositor on startup

When this is done, make reboot.


EDIT: this answer is for KDE 4 - not 5

This can be done from:

System Settings > Workspace Appearance and Behaviour > Desktop Effects > General > Activation  

A screenshot to show the menu:

And a lot of options in there to selectively block the effects so you don't miss out on all of the fun :)


In openSUSE Leap 42.2 , to turn off desktop effect. click settings > configure desktop> scroll down to display and monitor> compositor...un-click enable compositor on start up.
