[ubuntu] modifying drop shadows

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hello all. I've been trying to tinker with Ubuntu 12.04's drop shadow in the theme. I quickly found out that Compiz can only go to 18 on radius, and to give it more, you should go and modify the <shadow> xml tags in it's theme folder. I've pumped the number up to 48 (actually, i've tried 0, 12, 24, 36, and 48); all of which really give no change. It actually looks like Compiz still controls the shadows 100%, but I can't get it higher than 18. Anyone have this issue? (Hardware)
