Yes, I've gotten it working now too.  I'm using Ubuntu's Xorg, and I compiled 
kwin's kompmgr from KDE's CVS.  But after trying it, I found it was awfully 
slow, and the shadows didn't fade out; they looked really bad.  So, I renamed 
my xcompmgr, and now my shadows look nice.  That's the only feature I use, my 
graphics card (ATi sucks) is way too slow for transparency.  But thanks for
