ArchLabs 2018-12 goes like a rocket !! This afternoon I installed the latest version on a 240GB SSD. Congratulations to the whole team and thank you, thank you very much !!
How’d you get the panel transparent?
I don’t know.
tint2 panel just started showing as transparent on my systems whether compton was running or not. I haven’t done anything to the configuration. Never bothered to track it down as a bug in tint2, X etc … either.
Does it on Nvidia (ArchLabs install), Intel, and AMD graphics, as well as, for any window manager.
Sa - weeeet!!
Oh ok. I didn’t realize it was tint2.
Still doesn’t explain this though, from the tint2 git page:
opacity varies from (0 to 100), where 0 is fully transparent, 100 is fully opaque. Note that for a transparent panel you need to enable a desktop compositor (such as compton or compiz).
That still true? My tint2 panels are transparent whether a compositor is enabled or not. Never used tint2 enough to really notice.
back on topic - have 2018-12 release tweaked back to the usual setups; bspwm with polybar, openbox with tint2:
That is really nice!
