I am using i3wm on Manjaro Linux. My gtk theme has rounded corners for menus, but they still have a sharp black background. I am using picom compositor, and I think the issue is something related to that. How do I fix it?

You have to edit the source code directly and recompile picom. Fortunately for you (us) the work has already been done, so there is (at least one) patch to overcome this issue (i.e. [https://github.com/sdhand/picom]).

One more time, fortunately, you can just use any AUR package which provide it (i.e. [https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/picom-rounded-corners]).

  • I installed the AUR package but it made no difference, are there any config changes I need to make?

  • Probably you need; I don't have that system in my hands; to play it safe, delete your old configuration and start from a new one...
