Katapult and Compiz shadow

Does Katapult look funny when you've got compiz enabled? A sort of transparent box seems to appear underneath it whenever you use it, but it looked fine you started compiz?

The fix is easy. Open up the compiz settings manager, and head to the window decoration plugin. In there, make sure the Shadow window box reads:
any -name="katapult"
Now katapult will look just fine when next you use it.

You can just do it with the configuration settings of compiz. Just choose the plus sign at the right of the field used grab to grab Katapult (it just returns Katapult), choose AND and check the ivert checkbox. This returns " (any ) & !(class=Katapult) ", which leaves the other shadow intact.

I have my kicker bar at the top auto-hidden (on an EEE PC, there isn't a whole lot of space), and there's a small shadow at the top of my screen at all times if I don't turn it off. I just added & !(Class=Kicker) and it works great. Thanks for all the tips from this blog and the comments.
