I want to make every window ]transparent with opaque text. I have done some search on the internet and the answer I got is:
- Open Compiz Config Settings Manager.
- Click on Opacity, Brightness and Saturation in the Accessibility section.
- Under 'Window specific settings' click 'New'
- Type '(type=any)' into the 'Windows' text box and set 'Window values' to 20.
This works but makes the content of the window transparent (including the text) as well as the background.
And also there are provided options to increase and decrease opacity. On the same page I am successfully able to utilise that feature by configuring keyboard shortcuts as well as mouse shortcuts, but I was not able to add a shortcut that uses the scrolling of the middle mouse button.
I think these two feature would help me as well as Ubuntu to a great extent.
Right now I am using Ubuntu 11.04. In 11.10 I heard GNOME 3 will be used and this uses Mutter. What happens to Compiz?
As a summary I have 3 questions
How can I give every window a transparent background while keeping opaque content?
How can I use the mouse wheel to increase and decrease opacity?
What will happen to Compiz in 11.10?
