Hello there

Compton with proper compton.conf file should do this job.

well,

I just apt install compton.

Then you may have to edit the config file ~/.config/compton.conf in order to avoid transparency on application like VLC and so on, you can also choose the level of transparency etc.

I don't remember the link where I found the documentation but I think you can google it quite easily.

After that I ran swami to add compton on startup applications.

I keep following the thread so do not hesitate if you need further information.

Regards
