I don't know how many setups I've had on linux boxes feeling just so happy with how things work, and screaming this is the best ever!  :)

I myself have just gone from xfce to openbox (booh    ;)  )  but I want to go futher. A good read for WM hunters http://crunchbang.org/forums/viewtopic.php?id=18273

Hi! I installed Compton, but I can not find it. Maybe I did something wrong? Thank you! :(

try then sudo pacman -Ss compton-git  then password :)

save this in a file

Code: [Select]
# Shadow
shadow = true; # Enabled client-side shadows on windows.
no-dock-shadow = true; # Avoid drawing shadows on dock/panel windows.
no-dnd-shadow = true; # Don't draw shadows on DND windows.
clear-shadow = true; # Zero the part of the shadow's mask behind the window (experimental).
shadow-radius = 7; # The blur radius for shadows. (default 12)
shadow-offset-x = -7; # The left offset for shadows. (default -15)
shadow-offset-y = -7; # The top offset for shadows. (default -15)
# shadow-opacity = 0.7; # The translucency for shadows. (default .75)
# shadow-red = 0.0; # Red color value of shadow. (0.0 - 1.0, defaults to 0)
shadow-green = 0.5; # Green color value of shadow. (0.0 - 1.0, defaults to 0)
# shadow-blue = 0.0; # Blue color value of shadow. (0.0 - 1.0, defaults to 0)
shadow-exclude = [ "n:e:Notification" ]; # Exclude conditions for shadows.
# shadow-exclude = "n:e:Notification";
shadow-ignore-shaped = true;

# Opacity
menu-opacity = 0.9; # The opacity for menus. (default 1.0)
inactive-opacity = 0.9; # Opacity of inactive windows. (0.1 - 1.0)
frame-opacity = 0.8; # Opacity of window titlebars and borders. (0.1 - 1.0)
inactive-opacity-override = true; # Inactive opacity set by 'inactive-opacity' overrides value of _NET_WM_OPACITY.

# Fading
fading = true; # Fade windows during opacity changes.
fade-delta = 11; # The time between steps in a fade in milliseconds. (default 10).
fade-in-step = 0.03; # Opacity change between steps while fading in. (default 0.028).
fade-out-step = 0.03; # Opacity change between steps while fading out. (default 0.03).
# no-fading-openclose = true; # Fade windows in/out when opening/closing.

# Other
#inactive-dim = 0.5; # Dim inactive windows. (0.0 - 1.0, defaults to 0).
mark-wmwin-focused = true; # Try to detect WM windows and mark them as active.
mark-ovredir-focused = true;
detect-rounded-corners = true;

# Window type settings
wintypes:
{
  tooltip = { fade = true; shadow = true; opacity = 0.75; };
};

place it what ever you want in .config or else, then

compton --config /pathtoyour/comton.conf.as.example

place it at start like heh.. go to your  .config file,
if you find an autostart directory on mine it is :)

copy an starter , rename it and follow what there is.  on exec the rule of compton,   do you have lxsession-edit ? i know its in aur , you have to take it in aur if you dont have it... if you can do it? prefer then the lxsession-edit version (!)


then in the menu second from under??? lxsession-edit and you can switch on or off your starters...
