[Bug 503797] [NEW] Can not disable shadows in Window Decoration


Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: compiz

Using the CompizConfig Setings Manager it is impossible to disable
shadows using the Shadow windows configuration. The default value is
"any" but changing this to anything else does not have any effect on the
visibility of window shadows. Turning shadows off is therefore

The documentation suggests[1] an empty field, which does not work.
Inventive other things like "!any" and "title=Calculator" do not have
any effect either.

To reproduce the bug:
1) Install and open ccsm
2) Go to the Window Decoration plugin
3) Change the default value of "any" in the bottom field (Shadow windows) to anything else

What happens:
Nothing, I would expect it to have some kind of immediate effect just like with the Decoration Windows field. Rebooting (full restart) does not help.

Expected behavior: Either the shadows of some windows would disappear.
