I would like to be able to "click through" a certain window as if it was not there. How can I set this up?

Like the notify-osd notifications? –  Nathan Osman May 11 '11 at 3:46
@George Edison Yes, like the notify-osd notifications, but without becoming transparent. –  ændrük May 11 '11 at 12:35

There is a plugin called "ghost" which allows you do to this in compiz (if you are using compiz). I haven't tested it for a while though.

This plugin is supposed to allow you to make a window unclickable (a "ghost" of sorts).
