Hi !

I've just tried to enable X11 composite to get transparency in XFCE. Transparency seems to work but unfortunately i've a weird result in the taskbar, all window titles are "mixed" 8O
As you can see in the following screenshot, http://users.pandora.be/mldefays/screenshot.jpg the titles exceed their "boxes"

Here are the lines added to my xorg.conf file :

Code:


In the "Extensions" section
    Option "Composite" "Enable"
    Option "RENDER" "Enable"

As i have a Nvidia card (6600 GT) In the "Device" section

    Option      "RenderAccel" "true"
    Option "AllowGLXWithComposite" "True"



Do you have any clue on how to solve that ?

Regards

Teo

all i know is that composite extension in nvidia drivers is still very experimental and may not work as expected.
you can try updating to the latest nvidia driver ( ~arch )...

8O I've removed the 4 line from the xorg.conf to disable composite. It has been disabled but ... the problem is still there.
It doesn't seem to come from composite :?

I'll try to delete the .cache folder and empty .config one and i'll see but if you've any idea ! Don't hesitate !
