Thread: kde 4.2 kwin shadow color ignored

    Default kde 4.2 kwin shadow color ignored


    Is there any way to make kwin force the window shadow to be a particular
    color? Right now it tries to contrast itself with the background
    (resulting in a white glow against a darker background), which is
    inconsistent and ugly.

    Is there a setting, hidden or otherwise where I can disable this
    behavior (I'm open to patching and recompiling if necessary).

    I tried to set it in the desktop preferences, but no matter what color
    I chose, it was ignored. Also, any opacity setting greater than 30% or
    so would result in a white shadow, regardless of background color.

    Second that. Having a white bleach shadow over a dark themed background
    is not that pretty on my eyes too.

    Cheers.

    I have this same problem as well with the latest KDE 4.2 released by the
    opensuse factory.

    Menus in programs, mouse-overs in the system tray have the drop shadow
    color i have chosen.

    program windows do not. plasma mouse-overs do not (like the pop up
    from the clock). they all display a slight black shadow. something is
    not working here.

    i'm running opensuse 11.1.
