xcompmgr - sample X compositing manager
xcompmgr [-d display] [-r
radius] [-o opacity] [-l
left-offset] [-t top-offset]
xcompmgr is a sample compositing manager for X servers
supporting the XFIXES, DAMAGE, and COMPOSITE extensions. It enables basic
- -d display
- Specifies the display to manage.
- -r radius
- Specifies the blur radius for client-side shadows.
- -o opacity
- Specifies the opacity for client-side shadows.
- -l left-offset
- Specifies the left offset for client-side shadows.
- -t top-offset
- Specifies the top offset for client-side shadows.
- -I fade-in-step
- Specifies the opacity change between steps while fading in.
- -O fade-out-step
- Specifies the opacity change between steps while fading out.
- -D fade-delta
- Specifies the time (in milliseconds) between steps in a fade.
- Automatic server-side compositing. This instructs the server to use the
standard composition rules. Useful for debugging.
- Client-side compositing with soft shadows and translucency support.
- When -c is specified, enables a smooth fade effect for transient windows
like menus, and for all windows on hide and restore events.
- Simple client-side compositing. This is the default mode.
- Server-side compositing with hard-edged shadows.
- When -c is specified, attempts to avoid painting shadows on panels and
- When -f is specified, also enables the fade effect when windows change
their opacity, as with transset(1).
- Enables synchronous operation. Useful for debugging.
