I may have the solution for you, but to test if it will be the solution for you, then do the following:Right-click at your desktop, choose "Settings", then "Compositor" and "Disable Compositing". If the icons now look as they are supposed to, then enable compositing again (Settings-Compositor-Enable Compositing).Does the icons still look good?

By "desktop" do you mean the tint2 panel? If so, go to Settings >> tint2 >> Edit config file in the right-click menu and look for this line in the "Panel" section:panel_position = top center horizontalChange it topanel_position = bottom center horizontalthen restart tint2 from the right-click menu.
Open the menu, go to Settings -> Openbox -> edit rc.xmlFind this section:<mousebind button="Right" action="Press">

I've managed to disable compton from drawing shadows on tint2 by adding this to compton.conf .shadow-exclude = [ "tint2" ];Problem is if I reboot the shadows show up again until I restart compton, I am not sure but I think this might be due to compton being initialized before tint2 ? How should I work around this ?
