KDE .12 LTS is shaping up to become an epic release.

After configuring KWin to remove every window decoration, including the title bar and making use of its native quarter tiling, I almost feel like using my beloved tiling window managers.

@vascocosta I still prefer a nicely minimalistic customized #Cinnamon ... but yeah, the next KDE Plasma seems to be extremely attractive; hope it doesn't have too many animations and effects so it's as pragmatic as clean

@okasion

I like Cinnamon as well.

It feels pragmatic and clean out of the box, although it does have some animations. That being said, I disabled them easily right away.

@vascocosta
Looks great! How do you get the windows in the corners/side without the title bar? Do you use keyboard shortcuts? 🙂

@RyuKurisu Thanks.

It's a not so obvious setting in window decorations. I ended up creating a short tutorial video:

I forgot a simple final touch though, enable the virtual desktop switcher widget with 10 virtual desktops.

@vascocosta
I've only seen you snap the windows before the you removed the title bar. Can you still snap them with the mouse without the title bar? 🙂

@RyuKurisu You can do it before, by placing the mouse cursor over any border. However the borders are usually thin which makes it hard.
