X Window Manager with shadow effect?


Hi all

I wonder if anyone out there has a X window manager that can display shadow effect like the MacOSX for each window, if not, anyone can help to make something like this?

Thanks for all
Julius

Thank You contrasutra, but the patch that You are talking about, is not just for the gnome (gtk) menus?

Yes, its just for gtk, so you dont have to rebuild everything.

This is the gtk2.1 source and the patch. You could probobly just take the patch and apply it to a newer version of gtk, but im not positive.

http://www.users.monornet.hu/osx/Smo...h_patch.tar.gz


Instructions:

1. Extract files.
2. copy the gtk2-2.2.1-menu-drop-shadow-hacky-hack.patch to: extracted dir/gtk/
3. apply the patch:
# patch gtkmenu.c gtk2-2.2.1-menu-drop-shadow-hacky-hack.patch
4. if patch succesfull then
# ./configure --prefix=/usr
# make
# make install
5. restart Gnome or X
