On Gentoo....

This is strange.... when I start X through SLIM I loose the opacity(transparent look) on my urxvt windows. It's only when I start X through SLIM. If I start X with xinit directly, without SLIM, then my urxvt windows correctly have the opacity as they should.

The window manager is started the same way regardless with or without slim...through the .xinitrc file:

compiz --replace ccp& 

There are no issues with compiz ether way...only the transparency with urxvt.

The transparency with urxvt is set in .Xdefaults wtih:

urxvt*borderColor: rgba:0000/0000/0000/dddd 
URxvt*background: rgba:0000/0000/0000/dddd
