View Full Version : [ubuntu] How to Set Window Transparency with Compiz

July 27th, 2010, 11:30 PM
Sorry if this is in the wrong section, but I couldn't find a section for visual customization.

Is it possible to make it so that windows not being used have a certain opacity, and windows being used have another? Also, how can you change the opacity of menus? I used to be able to do this, but it seems I've forgotten. Any help would be appreciated.:D

Hi and I believe you can use the settings in Compiz Config settings manager, Opacify.
Moved to Desktop Environments

Thanks. But specifically, what do I change in Opacify?

It seems opacify only changes the opacity until you start working in a new window, then it changes the previous window back to its full percentage. I want to know if there is a way to make the old window transparent until you click back inside that one, and then make the previous window transparent, if that makes sense.
