[Gambas-bugtracker] Bug #2879: No transparent Gambas Forms on LXDE Desktops


Comment #2 by Bruce STEERS:

Hi Claus , just wondered if you fixed this?

I tried it out on a debian vm and it was just as i expected.

Yes after installing openbox-lxde-session there was black instead of transparent. this is due to not having a compositor running.

​I ran the following commands...

$ sudo apt install -y xcompmgr
$ ​sudo xcompmgr -n &
​Then transparency worked as expected.
If it works for you just add the "xcompmgr -n &" command to your lxde startup somehow.

So this is not a bug, gambas does in fact support transparency in lxde, but you must have a compositor running.
