My MacBook, with Retina Display, has problems with smooth animations. How can I turn off the transparency (and blur) in Launchpad on OS X El Capitan?
Also I'd like to turn off animation when I open folders with apps in Launchpad. Is this possible?

You can enter the following commands in Terminal.app, they will turn off the relevant animations:

To turn the animations back on, you enter the same commands, but with
