Re: Trouble with making Terminator partially transparent

I can manually change window transparency on the fly using keybinds. Maybe you can use transset when you start the terminal to set transparency?

FYI here are the stanzas from my rc.xml

    <!--Keybindings for window transparency -->
    <keybind key="W-equal">
      <action name="Execute">
        <command>transset-df -p --inc 0.1</command>
      </action>
    </keybind>
    <keybind key="W-minus">
      <action name="Execute">
        <command>transset-df -p --dec 0.1</command>
      </action>
    </keybind>

EDIT

After looking more closely at my terminal windows, trying your config and others, setting transparency on launch via a script with transset.....I have decided that it must be due to the compositor sad

The effect you describe is around the whole edge of the window, and is much more noticeable without window decorations and scrollbar, especially with a light background.

But I never noticed until just now so I dare say I'll live with it... smile

Re: Trouble with making Terminator partially transparent

Do you want transparency to the window under the terminal or through everything and show the desktop wallpaper even when there are things between?
If you want the latter I can post my config, with the former I also have a weird lines. hmm

Re: Trouble with making Terminator partially transparent

To me it looks like not so much light areas at the edges, but a dark area in the centre... perhaps what you're seeing here is just the shadow of the terminal window through the transparency? i.e. the terminal window's shadow, despite the window being transparent, still appears, creating a 'darkening' in the centre of your terminal window? Just a thought...

Re: Trouble with making Terminator partially transparent

Sorry, forgot to sub to the thread so I could get to reply quicker.
It only works with no Compositing, not sure how to make it default to maximized when open.
