Title: Transparent widget?
Post by: ackernan on September 14, 2011, 06:43:34
Can I make a widget transparent/semi-transparent so I can see my bg image?  The widgets I'm using now all have a black bg.  Can I have another color other then black? 

When I enable compositing the widget disappears.

All of the widgets and layouts I create and those that I use have transparency set as on within the script as a setting..  I am not sure what it is about yours that it is not working, but I am checking into it more...

This is a screenshot to help explain.  Can I make the black area around the controls, slider, and album info transparent/semi-transparent or even change colors?

Nevermind.  I enabled compositing and it's all working fine now.  It's transparent like I want.

Great to hear you got it all worked out...

Say, that layout looks a bit familiar....   8)

Looks like one of mine, # 4 perhaps?

More than that, you have great taste in music!

Thanks.  I have a collection of all kinds of music, but it's mostly rock.
