    Docky + emerald graphical problem

    Hello, this is my first post on the forum!

    I am using ubuntu 12.10 with xfce as a desktop environment, compiz with emerald and docky.

    Problem: White frames 1px wide appear around the icons in docky. Docky appears inside a white rectangle when "3d background" option is checked, and a big white rectangle hides a part of the top window when docky hides (this last issue dissapears when hiding is disabled). I have included a screenshot of what it looks like.

    What I have tried:
    Changing the icon set, but it doesn't change anything.
    I have also tried the different default themes for docky, they all have the same problem.
    When switching back to xfwm4, the problem remains.

    If I remember correctly, the problem appeared precisely during the installation of the following packages, just before installing emerald:
    git autoconf libtool libwnck1.0-cil-dev libwnck-dev intltool libdecoration0-dev gawk compizconfig-settings-manager

    Any ideas on what is causing this and how to fix it are welcome! Thanks in advance!

    ps: I hope this is the right place to post this question

    I think the problem was caused by disabling compositing in Xfwm, Xfce's window manager. Try re-enabling it.

    Thanks for the reply, the problem seems to have disappeared after a couple of reboots (loging out and back in was not sufficient).

    I'm going to mark this thread as solved.
