i just installed Arch Mate in a VM and noticed that with the same custom icon pack,when clicking on a panel icon-Firefox for example-the icon/fox bounces out of the icon and fades away.
in my manjaro KDE i just get a spinning wheel.
i think it’s similar to this thread:
The subject line says it all: I have the current release of Manjaro, with KDE Plasma 5.20.5. The Launch-Feedback (SYSTEM SETTINGS / PERSONALIZATION / LAUNCH FEEDBACK) doesn’t seem to have any effect. I want the ‘bounce’ effect, where I get a tiny bouncing icon when I double-click on a desktop icon. I can’t get the bounce feedback, or any of the other effects… (AMD64 system.)
I’m probably making some simple mistake… any help?
Thanks in advance!
but the solution there did not fix it for me.
Enable bouncing and set the time for the animation in System Settings > Launch Feedback …
it is/was already on bouncing.
Disable it, apply, clean .cache, enable it, apply > test again.
what part of .cache should i clean?
rm -rf ~/.cache/*
all of it
i prefer not doing that,but thanks.
You could copy to a backup first, delete to see if issue fixed, and restore if not?
i see mixed opinions about deleting or messing with the .cache;
since it’s just a cosmetic feature(a bouncing icon )and nothing major,
I’ll leave it this way,unless i find an easy fix.
Just a quick reminder. Bouncy icons do not work on wayland (yet). Just in case you are running Plasma Wayland session.
Is like washing the t-shirt you are wearing …
apparently i have that bouncy icon;
it’s visible when i move the cursor away from the panel icon.
the panel icon on the other hand has a spinning wheel.
but that’s not the effect i was looking for;
i made a video of it,it’s probably a Mate feature,
i was wondering how’s it called and if there’s a way to import it?
yeah. That’s a MATE feature/effect. I don’t think it exists in Plasma.
