Bug Description

Can't check if it's just the elementary theme but I believe it is. I was running Ubuntu 16.04 and LM 18 previously without this problem. I'm not sure what's creating the shadow box, but it's weird that it only happens on gdebi and synaptic when not in full screen.

I can confirm I have this bug too, but in my case I am on ArchLinux and I'm using the elementary gtk theme (https://launchpad.net/egtk). Some apps like chromium work fine, but gnome-screenshot, evince and others have border shadow bug.

I have just found how to work around the bug. Edit the following file:


< border-radius: 4px 4px 0 0;
< box-shadow: 0 0 0 1px alpha (#000, 0.3),
< 0 14px 28px rgba(0,0,0,0.35),
< 0 10px 10px rgba(0,0,0,0.22);
< margin: 12px;
> box-shadow: none;
> border: none;
> padding: 0;
> margin: 0;

The file is actually /usr/share/themes/elementary/gtk-3.0/gtk-widgets.css.
