Modify XFCE Window Manager Shadow (xfwm4)

I wasn't able to locate a GUI settings widget that would allow me to easily change the shadow settings in XFCE 4.12, part of the dom0 distributed with QubesOS. If I missed something or this has changed please let me know.

  • Open System Tools > Window Manager Tweaks
    • Click on the Compositor tab
    • Any time you adjust the following settings, check and uncheck the Show shadows under regular windows checkbox to preview/make your changes take effect.
  • Open System Tools > Settings Editor
    • Click on the xfwm channel. Scroll to the properties that begin with shadow_:
      • shadow_delta_height
      • shadow_delta_width
      • shadow_delta_x
      • shadow_delta_y
      • shadow_opacity
