A Cinnamon extension to customize window shadows.
Download it from Cinnamon Spices or search for "User Shadows" in your Cinnamon extension settings.
To download the source and install it, execute the following as a normal user:
git clone https://github.com/nathan818fr/cinnamon-user-shadows.git cd cinnamon-user-shadows cinnamon-install-spice extension files/user-shadows@nathan818fr
If you find any bug, you can report on the Github issues page.
Contributions are welcome. Please submit pull requests to the extension repository (not the Spices repository, which is only a distribution channel).
It is recommended to open an issue before introducing new features to discuss them.
• Can I change the color of the shadow?
No. The APIs required to do that are not exposed to cinnamon extensions.
• The shadow of some windows is not modified, what to do?
This extension only applies to windows rendered by the cinnamon window manager (a.k.a. Muffin). It is likely that you are dealing with Gtk CSD windows, whose shadow is defined by the Gtk theme you are using.
