That should obviously turn it on but it doesn't :| (maybe I did something wrong in the file, but I think it's all right). I tried adding "Composite" "Enable" stuff in xorg.conf but only fubared the display and showed a huge colored box in black background.
Now I'm using Fluxbox 0.9.12 and when I set the background with fbsetbg -f I get this error:
fbsetbg: Something went wrong while setting the wallpaper.
Run 'display -geometry 1280x1024+0+0 -window root hellsing_4.jpg' from an xterm to find out what.
Distribution: Arch, CentOS, Ubuntu, FreeBSD, Solaris / OpenIndiana
I've played around with it a bit, and found out that when I change the background with bsetroot (only change to a solid color) it makes aterm and menus transparent to that color. So if I change to red, I'll have tinted red menus and tinted red aterm, If I change to blue, I'd have tinted blue aterm and blue menus.
Any way to disable that, and just let me set the the image and transparency to it?
