Hi,

Does anyone know if gtk.set_opacity is compatible with xcompmgr? When i
try and use set_opacity in gnome it works fine (i have compiz enabled)
and self.window.is_composited() returns true. However when i try and run
the same program in openbox with xcompmgr running, the transparency does
not work and self.window.is_composited() returns false.

Is this the correct way to create a transparent window in pygtk? (I've
just started using pygtk).

thanks
john walker
