XFCE & Docky: Shadow line in the middle of screen

Post by ^rooker »

[PROBLEM]
I'm using Docky on XFCE4.
After doing some updates and changing configurations, I suddenly had a weird visible "line" at the bottom part of my screen. Seemed like a graphical glitch, but windows would snap to it, so it was somewhat "real" :?

[SOLUTION]
In XFCE's settings, enabling the following causes this shadow-line to appear (only when Docky's running):

Code: Select all

Window Manager Tweaks > Compositor > Show shadows under dock windows
I don't know if it's possible to have shadowed dock windows without this docky-line, but for now I've just disabled it.
