    Compiz Fusion: Transparent Windows

    I had 8.04 and could adjust the transparency of windows by holding alt and scrolling.

    I have 8.10 and cannot do this, I tried loosing in ccsm and can't find a way to enable it...

    There is the "opacify" plug in but that's the only one I know of

    Hey

    It's very easy to make transparent windows. It's the same way to make the menu transparent. Type "!" in the Opacity menu instead of copying "Tooltip | Menu | PopupMenu | DropdownMenu". That's all ...

    In ccsm, the plugin that does this is "Opacity, Brightness and Saturation" (under "Accessibility"-section.).

    On the Opacity-tab set mouse shortcut for "Increase" to "<Alt>Button4" and for "Decrease" to "<Alt>Button5". Now holding Alt and scrolling with the mouse wheel will increase/decrease the window's opacity.

    Thanks, I didn't even have to goto the tab, I just had to enabled it.

    I am not sure if it was enabled by default in 8.04, or I "accidentally" did it, but my 7.10 machine let me do it too, unless I activated it there without knowing either...
