early translucent attempt by blockhead early translucent attempt by blockhead
Getting that translucency, even when your hardware is up to it, is rather difficult in x-windows. Even such a variable as what program you use to set your wall will affect success or failure. In this case, "feh --bg-scale somepic.jpg" was the only one that worked.

While translucency is pretty, there is a major downside to it: cpu usage. The blue graph on the upper right part of the screen is solid blue, indicating 100% cpu usage.

I took this screenshot before stopping xcompmgr.

Window manager is blackbox. I used to use fluxbox but that has become more broken in recent versions. Also the fluxbox community is ... less than positive in attitude.
