Remove window shadows #2285
1 similar comment
For anyone who, like me, found this issue long before finding a solution, here is one that worked on my system: as root, edit /etc/environment and add MUFFIN_NO_SHADOWS=1 and save. Then log out, and log back in. Tada!
Here is a screenshot of a window and menu w/out shadows, along with my system for reference:
I agree, it'd be nice if this were a preference exposed in the settings, but here's a work-around for now!
Many thanks for contributing to Cinnamon. Your suggestion was reviewed. Your job is done and we'll take it from here :)

Sorry every one!
When I installed Cinnamon on Fedora 29, I did not change Display Manager, that was Gdm.
I have heard that Cinnamon appears to do not work well with other Display Manager than Lightdm.
So I changed it to Lighdm on Monday and ♪♫♬everything is going alright, don't worry about a thing ♪♫♬ ;)
I was confused with the issue, because when I used Linux Mint 19 Cinnamon that shadow issue happened and without knowing solution I survived with it.
But some other system crashes let me to use Fedora 29. And other system crashes later, I decided to change Gnome to Cinnamon on Fedora, and so I become a happier officer except for the display issues.
That display issues were forcing me to login system with only VGA display turned on and only after that I would turn on the DisplayPort display, elsewhere I cannot see menus, toolbars etc. of desktop or windows. Also, after the logon on that way, the wallpaper of VGA display became blinking and also that shadow issues happened together. So I thought the root cause was the same of that shadow issue, but only Monday I saw that is was a Cinnamon-only-works-well-with-Lightdm-issue.
After I fixed my issues using Lightdm substitution, I saw that MUFFIN_NO_SHADOWS=1 on a created /etc/environment only with that clause worked, but removing limits from a window to other ones. So I do MUFFIN_NO_SHADOWS=0 and the same happened. So I remove that clause and all is ok. Thanks!
