Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I've been trying some themes and window border styles, but on my machine the borders that are supposed to be rounded are still drawn as a rectangle. The bits of the corners that are supposed to be see-through are filled with white or some other color that differs from theme to theme.
In metacity screenshots i've seen so far, borders were clean so i assume the problem lies with my system.
I'd really like my windows to look good, and i don't feel like switching to another windowmanager since metacity works very neatly with gnome.
I've search both google and these forums, but i haven't found a thing.
I'm using gentoo on an Asus notebook, with a 855GME graphics chip.
Both the gnome and metacity installations are at version 2.12.2
When i emerged metacity i noticed it said that using xorg with composite together with metacity may cause "unwanted border effects", wich sounds a bit like my problem, only i don't have composite enabled in my xorg.conf.
If you feel like helping me out a bit and you need some more specifics please ask.
