[Bug 449272] Re: [compiz] applets with Dock type window leave shadow


Hello everybody. Bravo for helping the software we all freely share.
That's ubuntu spirit.

I think that this certain bug report is more generalized than it should
be. I'll explain myself right away. The problem does not affect every
window which is type=Dock. For example the clock applet as also the
gnome panel its self are dock type windows but you can hide them without
any problem of remaining shadow. This is the reason for having a
separate fix for the bug #428783 which was about the clock. The same
way, the dictionary applet requires a different, separate fix.

@ roadSurfer: You suggested a nice work around. I'll make a little
correction. Setting the "Shadow windows" rule to "(any) & !(type=Dock)"
also removes the shadow from the panel which is not very nice (though
it's not a big problem). I suggest to isolate just the problematic
applet windows setting the rule to "(any) & !(class=Gnome-dictionary-
applet) & !(class=Invest-applet)".

I think it's clear that the bug does not affect every dock type window
and as so I think that the summary should refer only to the invest
