[Bug 1606369] Re: Compiz ‘Thumbnail Window Previews’ artefacts (further fix +)


The solution proposed by David Black won't eliminate all artefacts
related to the thumbnail window previews. To see this, apply the
proposed solution and then just type "wish" in a MATE-Terminal. The
resulting window has a geometry of 200x200, and the corresponding
thumbnail still gives rise to the reported artefact. Same problem with
any other top-level window having a sufficiently small size.

Alternative solution: Change
org.compiz.profiles.mate.plugins.thumbnail.border from the value 12 to
19 (or higher).

With this patch, I could no longer reproduce that annoying thumbnail
artefact, regardless of whether the change proposed by David Black was
in effect or not.

BTW: IMHO, the shadow effect generated by the original offset value of 6
(for active-shadow-x-offset, active-shadow-y-offset, inactive-
shadow-x-offset and inactive-shadow-y-offset) looks better than the one
corresponding to the proposed offset value of 2). Of course, this is
just matter of taste.
