Bug Description

Binary package hint: compizconfig-settings-manager

Using compiz in Ubuntu Gutsy, a change to either Window Decoration's "Shadow Offset X" or "Shadow Offset Y" value does not take effect. To find the appropriate options, start ccsm and goto Effects->Window Decoration.

The default value for each setting is 1. Neither changing that to the minimum nor maximum shows any difference in window decoration visuality.

Apparently, this bug has already been observed in Feisty. See this forum posting:

No wonder, the decorator code expects to find shadow_offset_x/y while the gconf and ccsm code uses shadow_x/y_offset.

Here's a fix for gconf and ccsm.
The patch also changes the limit on shadow radius from 18.0 to 48.0 as the decorators happily handle values up to 48.0.

The modified patch you posted to bugs.opencompositing.org is missing the compiz-decoration.schemas part.

That part gets generated by the build system.
