I've tried to enable dropshadows in two systems running
both I stumbled into problems with Metacity. In one system with an

"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
Another update... though the metacity bug as solved, One that was
present and I did not play much attention to, still bugs the system in
GNOME: The close session panel will not come up, the system will "hang"
whenever I press the log-out button.
This issue was already asked in the main fedora-list, but I wonder if
the solution found there still applies in this case.
