Compton Configs

BunsenLabs now has the latest version of Compton available in our backports.

I'm curious what settings people are using, please post yours here if you don't see a setting already posted.

Here's mine, it's minimal...

backend = "glx";
vsync = "opengl-swc";

shadow = true;
no-dnd-shadow = false;
no-dock-shadow = true;
shadow-radius = 8;
shadow-offset-x = -10;
shadow-offset-y = -8;
shadow-opacity = 0.4;


menu-opacity =  1.0;
inactive-opacity = 1.0;

fading = true;
fade-delta = 2;

Fade-delta 2 is just enough to give some nice eye-candy/visual polish without making the desktop feel any less "snappy".

Re: Compton Configs

This is a shadow-less configuration that works well with an Intel HD4400 graphics card:

backend = "xr_glx_hybrid";
vsync = "opengl-swc";
glx-no-stencil = true;
glx-no-rebind-pixmap = true;
vsync-use-glfinish = true;

Re: Compton Configs

Mine is a monster by comparison, a holdover from Waldorf with a few tweaks for conky.

Well documented with unused features as "I'manoob" wink

# Shadow
shadow = true;
no-dnd-shadow = true;
no-dock-shadow = true;
#clear-shadow = true;
shadow-radius = 7;
shadow-offset-x = 3;
shadow-offset-y = 3;
shadow-opacity = 0.7;
# shadow-red = 0.0;
# shadow-green = 0.0;
# shadow-blue = 0.0;

## Remove Shadow from CONKY WINDOW ##
## compliments mrpeachy and falldown
# use wininfo to determine window name -OR- in the conky:
#		own_window_class conky_logo
# Then just simply use:
#		shadow-exclude = "i:e:window-name";
# Use brackets and comma for more then one window
#		shadow-exclude = ["i:e:conky_logo","i:e:conkyw","i:e:S11","i:e:test"];
#		shadow-exclude = "i:e:Conky";
############## try this #################
shadow-exclude = ["i:e:Conky","i:e:interactiveconky","i:e:click_log","i:e:xfce4-notifyd"];


shadow-ignore-shaped = false;

# Opacity
menu-opacity = 0.75;			# The opacity for menus. (default 1.0)
# inactive-opacity = 0.9;			# Default opacity of inactive windows. (0.0 - 1.0)
# active-opacity = 0.8;			# Default opacity for active windows. (0.0 - 1.0)
# frame-opacity = 0.8;			# Opacity of window titlebars and borders. (0.1 - 1.0)
inactive-opacity-override = false;	# Let inactive opacity set by 'inactive-opacity' overrides
 					# value of _NET_WM_OPACITY. Bad choice.
alpha-step = 0.06;			# XRender backend: Step size for alpha pictures. Increasing
					# it may result in less X resource usage,
					# Yet fading may look bad.
#inactive-dim = 0.5;			# Dim inactive windows. (0.0 - 1.0)
# inactive-dim-fixed = true;		# Do not let dimness adjust based on window opacity.
# blur-background = true;		# Blur background of transparent windows.
					# Bad performance with X Render backend.
					# GLX backend is preferred.
# blur-background-frame = true;		# Blur background of opaque windows with transparent
					# frames as well.
#blur-background-fixed = false;		# Do not let blur radius adjust based on window opacity.
#blur-background-exclude = [ "window_type = 'dock'", "window_type = 'desktop'" ];
					# Exclude conditions for background blur.


# Fading
fading = false;
# fade-delta = 30;
#fade-in-step = 0.03;
#fade-out-step = 0.03;
# no-fading-openclose = true;

# Other
mark-wmwin-focused = true;
mark-ovredir-focused = true;
detect-rounded-corners = true;
detect-client-opacity = true;
#refresh-rate = 0;
#vsync = "none";
dbe = false;
paint-on-overlay = false;
sw-opti = false;

# Window type settings
wintypes:
{
  tooltip = { fade = true; shadow = false; opacity = 0.85; };
};

Image or it doesn't work.
Top has: own_window_class Conky
Botton has: own_window_class Conkyy
Both with own_window_argb_value 120

BTW, this also alows for a semi-transparent OpenBox Menu and a dropshadow as well
