This may be a dumb question but I am working with fedora 12 for the first time and I'm not very familiar to Linux just yet. I need any Information on shading, if anyone can shed a little light on the topic of shading, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
Its a college course question. we are using fedora 12 as the OS of choice, not my choice. I would prefer the newest version. But if you know colleges, they are all behind the times. This is the reason why I'm having a hard time with this, because i need to give some information on "shading" but that's all the questions asks. Everywhere I look for a possible answer I cant seem to find one. All know is its GNOME component or feature and I'm asked to describe it. Apparently there are more then one way to shade?
see thats the thing. i have no idea? all im looking for is the concept of shading. I was given the term only, and i havent found anything to help me with this concept of "shading" I was told, yes that is has to do with graphics but other then that i dont have any clue. I'm new to the Linux world so i dont know that much about it yet.
Unless it is a reference to "shading" a window -That is hiding all of it but the title bar- with a manager (Such as in compiz). Mine fold in a horizontal pattern when I double click, but there are tons of other options. Other then that all I can think of is to click on the links provided above, and see if that is what you want.
YES!!! Thank you, that's exactly what I was looking for. I slowly bits and pieces as the last week has gone on. But you all gave me the information I was looking for, simple really but didn't know what they were trying to get when they just said the term "Shading"
