I'm using kdes' composite manager from kde 3.3 with xorg 6.8. One of the annoying things using drop shadows is applications like Super Karamba themes, dockers like KXDockers are giving wierd shadows with current composite manager. So I wrote this simple scipt to remove drop shadows from what ever the kde apps that does not fit to drop shadows.
1. Execute the script (either double clicking or in command line).
2. When the cursot pointer become crossed, click on the application that you want to remove drop shadow.
(Special thanks to Thomas, author of Baghira theme for his hints on this)

PLEASE don't ask me for my Amarok super karamba theme...unless you are sure that Apple will not sue me...:-)
