Question All my desktop transparency disappeared!


I was browsing these very forums when I opened up Firefox's downloads window to check something. I went back to desktop #1, and the next thing I knew, gkrellm and Eterm (which are normally transparent) had grey backgrounds. If I open any more terminals, they're all grey too. Restarting X didn't help, either.

So what's going on? Is there anything I can do to fix it?

Thanks for your assistance! (Great site, btw. You might be seeing me here more often )

Since what you're talking about isn't real transparency, there'a probably an issue with however you set your wallpaper. Do you use something like Esetroot or an in-built KDE method? I haven't used KDE for ages so I'm not really sure how it handles things.

Built-in KDE method. i.e., through the KDE control center.

After reading your post, I played around with my wallpaper. I set it to 'no background,' then I set it back to the one I had before. Afterwards, I switched gkrellm themes and it became transparent again. Finally, I closed Eterm, opened it again, and it was transparent.

Everything seems to be OK now. Thanks for the push in the right direction.
