I'd love to see a description of the animation and/or a screenshot or two :D

(i'm curious but have little time to test this myself)

There's not a lot to see really ;) It's just kind of slow motion, as you would imagine. Looks very nice and only takes a couple of minutes to copy the files over - give it a whirl.

... and got it working. Cool!

Can't get the present windows clone to work, even trying to follow the same tricks, however :(

There's a bug in plasmapkg. Only plasmapkg as of current master can install the script. You can manually copy the files to the right location. The content should go to ~/.kde/share/apps/kwin/effects/kwin4_effect_maximize/ and the metadata.desktop should be copied in addition to ~/.kde/share/kde4/services/kwin/kwin4_effect_maximize.desktop

you need to copy the whole "contents/" folder to the mentioned location.. not just the "code/" folder or the "maximize.js" .. everything..

plasmapkg did it right but created a "scripts" folder instead of the "effects" folder..

Your mistake was the type "kwinscript", it's type "kwineffect"
