Hi all.

 

Well, basically what i says in the title: is there a way to enable it the way enlightenment allows it? The Idea is to only have the applications icons be visible, but right now there is an opaque white background that just won't go away.

 

I've installed ecomp and ecomorph, and I've enabled ARGB in the advanced options. The relevant shelves themselves are set to transparent already.

 

Is it impossible, or did I forget something ?

 

Thanks





A big thank you to everyone who contributes to Bodhi Linux

I have not installed any compositor and making the shelf invisible brings iBar items transparent. The only drawback is the systray which won't be shown.

What you describe is what I had before I went from bodhi 3.x to 4.1.

So there could be some setting somewhere that I've missed...

 

I did try changing the theme to see whether it wasn't locked that way, but no such luck.

Hmm, no problem here. ArcDark and Green theme tried. Please can you post a screenshot?

Well, here you go. All the solid black areas should be transparent (and were until I switched to 4.1)

Which theme are you using? What "style" is your shelf set to?

The theme is Moksha Dark (except for the clock module which is MokshaKL4K). Changing the theme didn't solve the problem.

The shelves that should be transparent (but are just black for ibox and ibar) are set to invisible.

Does this issue happen when running live session?

So, the card is an integrated intel graphic card using the i915 driver.

 

After testing, it appears the issue doesn't appear in the live session.

The test with the live session got me thinking, and after testing it out, I realized a brand new account doesn't have the issue.

So it seems there are remains of the e19 settings from bodhi 3.x that are a problem. Any idea of what I need to specifically erase, or do I need to nuke the complete .e directory and reconfigure my desktop settings from scratch?

Ahh yea - left over settings from e19 could cause any end of issues. You very much should nuke your `/.e folder and start fresh.
