Re: Composite and Metacity.

I've tried to enable dropshadows in two systems running FC3, in both I stumbled into problems with Metacity. In one system with an nVidia GF FX5900, window borders would be transparent, and only "unmanaged" (borderless) windows would cast shadows (menus, dragged icons, etc), while managed windows would not, the window border would be traslucent, and not cast a shadow. The other system, a laptop, will not focus windows when loged into GNOME, I cannot even run xcompmgr to activate dropshadows when I have active the Composite and RENDER extensions. However KDE works in both systems just fine with dropshadows, why isn't Metacity working as it should? Is there somethening that can be done, do I need a newer metacity or a patched one?

Thanks.

If anyone else messses with this and stumbles into the same wall I did, you need a newer Metacity version, I found that 2.8.8 works quite good and allowed me to start a GNOME session in the Laptop, I still have to try it in the Desktop, but I'm confident it will work just as fine. If you ever need that rpm, get it from:
