Description:

This is the well known KDE KWin dropshadow patch Version 0.8 ported to KDE Version 3.5.7, but it may apply to all 3.5.x Versions (untested!)

For all ATI users and those whose laptops are too slow for real composite (like mine is) :)

Would be great having shadow while moving the windows.

That's the thing why you'll need real composite to do that.

These shadows work by creating an extra window that contains a screenshot over which the shadow is drawn. But you can't do screenshots of things that are hidden normally. Here comes composite to work, with it you can get the contents of the hidden parts and do a "screenshot" of exactly that to render shadows.

This one is thought for computers where composite won't work because of slowness or crappy drivers. So if you have a decent PC use the kcompmgr shadows that are already included with kde.

Cheers, I'll try this as soon as I can be bothered to compile.
