Looks like a desktop specific dbus API, without any documentation that I could find.
Now instead it's part of the
org.gnome.Mutter.ScreenCast/RemoteDestop API to allow any remote desktop or screen cast application to inhibit animations while its session is active.
Merged by Jonas Ådahl 2 months ago, yet I can't see this API as a dbus interface or gsettings, even on Fedora 32 with mutter 3.36.1, so I've asked: how to use.
$ gsettings list-recursively | grep -i animations org.mate.interface gtk-enable-animations true org.mate.interface enable-animations true org.gnome.desktop.interface enable-animations true com.deepin.wrap.gnome.desktop.interface enable-animations true
And this toggles it:
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface enable-animations false
The only problem is that
gsettings are global for the user and not per-session, and so this will affect other sessions until we reset it on exit.
Not a huge problem anyway since most desktop environments don't deal well with having multiple sessions for the same user simultaneously.
Implemented in r26293.
Problem is that we can't enable this new code by default because
Gio.Settings can very easily segfault the whole process:
$ python3 -c "from gi.repository import Gio;Gio.Settings.new('hello')" (process:490782): GLib-GIO-ERROR **: 18:19:01.514: Settings schema 'hello' is not installed Trace/breakpoint trap (core dumped)
So for now, this needs to be enabled using:
XPRA_MODIFY_GSETTINGS=1 xpra start ...

This needs to be reported upstream..
I know it's extra hustle for an upstream bug, but can't you do it in the same way as OpenGL probing is done (i.e. with a new process doing it and let it crash instead)? 😕

Better solution: r26294.
