Window Maker

Recommended Posts

I don't know how to make console transparent in Window Maker. I choose schema->transparent and nothing happens. How should I change it?


its been a long time since i used window maker....


what kind of transparency are you talking about ?

if its emulated / pretend / software transparency then sorry, i dont know.


but if you are tlaking about Real Hardware Accelerated Transparency with all the Alpha Blending... (looks AMASING !!!!) then the likely solution is an out of date X server or misconfigured X server.


you need to have Xorg-6.8 and xcompmgr installed, and xcompmgr listed as an extension in /etc/X11/xorg.conf


beware this feature of X is consitered under testing, and may on occasion leave an artifact or two on your screen.
