I am using i3 with compton and when I replace a placeholder window with a window that has transparency rules from compton they do not get applied.
I was going to attempt to assign a compton rule for the placeholder window itself to see if compton would retain the rules for the window, but using
Either the window would trigger compton when it replaces the placeholder (not sure if that's possible here or if compton needs something) or the placeholder windows should have a class name so that rules in compton can be made for them.
i3 version: 4.17.1 (2019-08-30)
- Linux Distribution & Version: Arch Linux - Are you using a compositor (e.g., xcompmgr or compton): compton
The window manager doesn't know about the compositor at all, so I'm not aware of anything we can do. I believe it would be good to cooperate with compton on this to figure out what is not happening. Perhaps you can file an issue there and cross-link the two issues?
I agree and believe we should do this independently of the compositing issue. Can you file this as a separate issue (or a PR :-) )?
