View Full Version : [ubuntu] How to remove Metacity drop shadow without disabling compositing?

March 9th, 2010, 06:28 PM
Ok I have to disable Compiz and revert to Metacity [1].

However, the drop shadow introduced by Metacity Compositing has been bugging me. Personally, I find it jarring especially the shadow under the top panel. I do appreciate the other features provided by Compositing, so I would rather not disable Compositing completely.

Any idea how to disable only the drop shadow?


[1] Been pulling my hair out from random system freeze and crashes for weeks. I tried many things without success, but the latest action in disabling Compiz appeared to be working. Though it would take at least another week before I declared it fixed.
