.SH DESCRIPTION
.B compton-trans
is a bash script that sets _NET_WM_WINDOW_OPACITY only using standard
command-line utilities for X11, including xprop(1) and xwininfo(1).
It is similar to other utilities like transset(1) or transset-df(1).

.BI \-o\ opacity
Specify the new opacity value for the window. This value
