Description Christian Stadelmann 2016-12-04 09:04:34 UTC
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
always with the specified setup

Steps to Reproduce:
1. In GNOME wayland session or inside weston,
2. start any Qt5 application with `QT_QPA_PLATFORM=wayland-egl`
3. use the application, especially menus (from both menu bar and context menu)

Actual results:
Menus have no borders and shadows

Expected results:
Menus should have borders and shadows as they do when running under XWayland, i.e. without `QT_QPA_PLATFORM=wayland-egl`.

Additional info:
In both weston and gnome-shell I can see the same behavior so I guess this is a bug in Qt5, but I might be wrong on that.

can you reproduce this issue with the latest qt5-qtbase-5.7.1-19 ?

With that release of Qt5, menus still have no shadows, but they have borders, which is enough to distinguish them from the background. This is fine for me.
