BL 5-64bit - What's the difference between "desktop" and "desktop hover"


When I add a helper and move it to the desktop, I'm offered the two options mentioned in the topic.
What's the difference between these, please?

Hello

Hover is a desktop layer above the main background where you can place your gadgets. Your gadgets are visible on demand you can show with short cut combination defined in key binds section. Look up "Show gadgets". In best way when you use some compositor, it creates nice transparent effect. I had my stickynotes screenshots examples in our old forum with CLI forecast. Maybe I can create it once again for better understanding.

Oh, compton composition is great but after playing with hover settings and set it up to transparent it looks supercool now...

ya that is much better! nice work stefan!

when i first got into linux i did a lot of work tweaking stuff and had a lot of darker themes- but later on my laptops are rather plain. maybe just too old - also just way too much work here to spend tweaking stuff. and it has to be easy to see my work.

:-))))
