Sort of, but what picom would do would be to treat the tray as it’s own window. None of the fixes worked. I am pretty sure it is due to the bar alpha, not that I use any transparency there. I’m not overly bothered.
Oh and the icons would have black squares around them. With or without picom.
@KoO Yep, I do. I find xcompmgr works quite well with both dwm and i3wm. It is good on both arch and debian based distros. TBH much of the time lately, I have been running compositor-free (the ultimate in low compositor resources).
I quite like transparency with my tiler mostly for terminals and bars, I dont use it on any of the GUI programs. But I will say this for a GUI desktops like any of them it would be a must as they just a mess of over lapped programs just like blowdows. If I had to use only a GUI desktop I would sell every computer I own never again. (my opinion)
