But Magic Lamp effect has made at least with 3 waves animation by default to avoid the copyright infringement issue from Apple Inc.. Anyway, we can simply edit 2 files to emulate it in Compiz.
- Install ghex in Software Manager or Software Center.
- Open ghex and edit /usr/lib/compiz/libanimation.so
- On the right column, find magic_lamp_max_waves. Just right after this, change the value "3" to "0" in between <min> and </min>. Save and close file.
- Open Terminal, enter the following command to open animation.xml file as root:
- Look for magic_lamp_max_waves, change "3" to "0". Save and close the file.
- Restart your computer. You will see no wave animation in Magic Lamp.
sudo gedit /usr/share/compiz/animation.xml
