First off you have to identify if you want pseudo or real transparency. Most likely you are trying to accomplish pseudo transparency. In this instance most of the time the problem comes with the tool that sets the background image.

What are you using to set your background image? When I used Fluxbox I used Esetroot and I was able to accomplish transparency fine.

Google for the fluxbox-wiki, that is a very informative site and it has at least one article on transparency.

HTH,

Centinul

Hmmm... Interesting... Then it appears you must have a different problem. It must be something to do with the configuration of X, or your video drivers I imagine.

Using Esetroot has always worked for me.

Thanks,

Centinul
