Xfwm4 shows window shadows across multiple monitors


Description haarp 2015-06-22 23:39:43 CEST
Some tiny nitpicking: With compositing and shadows enabled, Xfwm shows shadows across monitor borders.

i.e. if a window is completely on monitor A, but near the edge towards monitor B, part of the shadow is visible on B (of course this would be a different case if the window was partially on A and B).

I suppose if we ever invent monitors with literally 0 bezel width, this would make sense :) But for now, it looks a bit weird.

Yes, I agree, but I am not sure it's worth the effort/complexity.
Comment 2 Simon Steinbeiss editbugs 2020-01-15 22:22:35 CET
I also agree. At least with maximized windows this problem is easily fixable (bug #16381)
