Description Michael Monreal 2006-12-27 03:12:45 UTC
First off, I'm running xorg 7.2 from Ubuntu Edgy and latest compiz from git.

Ok, problem is that when I start a session using GDM, all windows have a white
border around them (instead of a shadow I suppose)

I start compiz using

compiz --use-cow gconf & gtk-window-decorator &

in my startup script.

To fix the shadows I have to kill compiz and the decorator and start them again
from within the session. What's wrong here?

Created attachment 8226 [details]

This is what I get after starting a session. Note: the menu is *not*
transparent here, dunno why it ended up being trnasparent on the screenshot.
The menus and the white borders are all solid

Sorry about the phenomenal bug spam, guys.  Adding xorg-team@ to the QA contact so bugs don't get lost in future.

If you're using AIGLX, this could be a duplicate of bug 11109.

Wow... I don't even remember filing this bug. Anyway, I haven't seen this problem in a long time...

Bugzilla Upgrade Mass Bug Change

NEEDSINFO state was removed in Bugzilla 3.x, reopening any bugs previously listed as NEEDSINFO.

Closing... works for me these days.
