This is a simple Control Center module one can use to change the look of the shadows under the desktop icons.

Many people complained about ugly default shadows, but there was no easy way (say a GUI) to change this.

You can use this little tool to change this.

Have fun!

Please let me know if it was useful for you.

Why did you add such a huge plain border around the controls? I hate huge windows and this one is giant for no reason at all. Considering the shadows is just a simple line in a text file, I have no use for this but the actual GUI needs some polish. It is way to big for no reason at all.

Yeah? Well...you're hogging up all the ugly!

I don't like this, too.
I added some spacers to the layout, so the widgets will be resized in a nice way when the window is enlarged.
These spacers cause the large border.
I need to tune them a bit to make it smaller.

Please note this control center module is meant as a kind of workaround, which should be replaced by a proper dialog by the KDE-people.
I only made this because of so many complaints about the standard shadows.

So rather the original settings shall get adjusted rather than a new configuration option.

First I have to say: great program!
But, I have a question. Which config file does this program change? And I also have a suggestion for future versions: A possibility to restore the original setting would be nice (there is a button in your program for that, but it doesn't work yet).

For just this reason (it doesn't work yet) I removed this button in the current release :-)
Please update ;-)

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
