[SOLVED] Portal to the Wallpaper

I'm currently taking a look at my terminator config, but I noticed something very interesting in it's background ;)

I have @damo's blue-flame background set up, and as you can see, my terminator instance is, in essence, creating a portal back to the background!

It does not show my conkys when positioned over where they are positioned. As well, it does not show my tint2 when positioned over that.

It does exhibit the same behavior regardless of whether the program it is in front of is fullscreen or not.

It is not the color of the background. It does exhibit MILD shading based on it's relative position to the background however.

When dragged, the icon keeps its position on the terminal until release and then is recalibrated. (If it is clicked and dragged, the flame stays in the same spot on the background of terminator. When I let it go, the flame is imprinted on the background (or not) in relation to where it would be on the background after the move of the terminal)

I am using @hhh's Bunsen2-Dark-Blue theme in `lxappearance` and his Bunsen1-Blue theme in `obconf`. I am using the `~/.config/terminator/config` file that is in the github BL .config/terminator/config file.

It's kind of a cool feature (with minimalist wallpapers), and I wouldn't be adverse to leaving it there if that was intended. If not, I did want to at least report it, because I had never seen that functionality before.

Re: [SOLVED] Portal to the Wallpaper

That's how terminals usually handle background opacity when compositing is not used. They take a copy of wallpaper and add a layer of terminal background color to it. With true compositing you'll see underlying windows through the terminal.

Quick and painless answer. Thank you. Indeed enabling compositing gets rid of this behavior. Marking this [SOLVED]

Yup... thank you, HoaS.
Guess I had a HUH moment there.

I had:

[topic=423262]compton and conky[/topic]

vs

[post=423262]compton and conky[/post]

My original post corrected.
