I'm using the i3 tiling window manager. As it doesn't do compositing, I've enabled the
xcompmgr compositor in my ~/.i3/config file as well as
feh to display a wallpaper:
exec --no-startup-id xcompmgr -c -C -t-5 -l-5 -r4.2 -o.55 exec feh --bg-scale ~/Downloads/Arch-Linux-Bluewave.jpg
lxterminal supports translucency etc. but when I arrange my terminals vertically, some ghosting, tearing and decoration artifacts from other workspaces appear to the top right - and disappear as soon as the window is tiled horizontally. Furthermore, when
transmission-gtk "floats" a dialog box, moving that box around leaves ghosting in the form of tiny horizontal lines which remain until some refresh.
Is there any workaround?
