Generally apps should feel snappier. I think the best way to test i by adding a lot of plasma widgets and then draging them around wildly, resizing them etc.
On a netbook for example the plasma-netbook application launcher ought to perform super fast with OpenGL.

As far as I know there is no way to check what backend is in use.

I do not think Qt will use a fallback though, if it breaks, it breaks. So as long as you have a recent enough Qt version (which ought to be 4.7 beta2 or above if I am not mistaken) it should be usign OpenGL if that is selected.

I have qt 4.6.3 installed but I have also qt-devel installed (which is alfready version 4.7 beta2) so I compiled your program by setting the environment variable to : PATH=/opt/qt-devel/bin/:$PATH . Is this right? Is it working this way?

You can probably build on Qt 4.5 even, but its setting will only have effect on Qt 4.7 applications.

yep... OpenGL makes kwin crash I think... and f*** all text rendering etc. up... not a good idea for the whole environment... some specific apps MAY SOMEDAY improve when using it... but not atm I think...

I don't know a stable distro that provides Qt 4.7.0.

mhm... openSUSE buildservice coming to my mind... they for sure have packages..

and on ArchLinux (rolling distro) you can build yourself a qt-git snapshot from the Arch user repository...

Not sure I want to break my system installing unsupported version of Qt.

Anyway, thanks to the Author for the job.

Kubuntu if you add the backports for KDE 4.5.1
It really is stable, even Qt 4.7.0 is really stable :)

Its still 4.7.0 RC and you cant call a RC a stable ;)

That's true, officially not, but I call it stable 'cause I haven't found any issues with Qt 4.7.0 ;)
