TRANSSET(1)                 General Commands Manual                TRANSSET(1)



NAME
       transset - Set transparency on a window

SYNOPSIS
       transset [-options ...] [opacity]

DESCRIPTION
       transset  is a simple program for X servers supporting the XFIXES, DAM-
       AGE, and COMPOSITE extensions.  It lets the user set  the  transparency
       on a window.

       The opacity value is a number from 0 to 1, with zero being fully trans-
       parent and 1 being fully opaque.  If no opacity argument  is  given,  a
       default  value of 0.75 is used for the opacity value.  If neither --inc
       nor --dec are given, the opacity is treated as an  absolute  value  and
       set  to  the given opacity value.  If --inc or --dec is specified, then
       the opacity is treated as a relative value to increase or decrease  the
       current opacity by.

OPTIONS
       -display display
               This option specifies the server to use; see X(7).

       -h, --help
               This option displays a help message and exits.

       -t, --toggle
               This option forces a toggle of opacity.  If the current opacity
               is not set to fully opaque (opacity 1.0), it will be  reset  to
               fully opaque.  If the window is already fully opaque, the opac-
               ity will be set normally.

       -c, --click
               This option selects the target window by waiting for  the  user
               to  click the mouse - the topmost window under the mouse cursor
               when the mouse click occurs will be used as the target.

       -p, --point
               This option selects the window currently under the cursor to be
               the target.

       -a, --actual
               This  option  selects the window that currently has input focus
               to be the target.

       -n, --name name
               This option selects the target window by name,  where  name  is
               matched  as  a  regular  expression,  unless --no-regex is also
               specified.

       --no-regex
               This option disables treating the name argument to --name as  a
               regular expression.

       -i, --id
               This option selects the target window by window id.

       --inc   This  option  increases the window opacity by the given opacity
               argument.

       --dec   This option decreases the window opacity by the  given  opacity
               argument.

       -m, --min opacity
               This  option  sets  the  minimum  possible  opacity  value.  It
               defaults to 0 if this option is not given.

       -x, --max opacity
               This option  sets  the  maximum  possible  opacity  value.   It
               defaults to 1 if this option is not given.

       -v, --verbose
               This  option  prints  some additional debug info as the program
               operates.

       -V, --version
               This option prints the program version number and exits.

       Probably.   Please  report  any  you  find  to   https://bugs.freedesk-
