transsetdf(1) change window transparencies on the fly


transsetdf [options]


This manual page documents briefly the transsetdf command.

transsetdf is a program that allows the user to change window transparencies on the fly. Supported methods include using window manager hotkeys, 'select by pointing' without actually selecting a window, and selecting by name and window id. transset-df is a modified version of xorg's transset and requires compositing to function. It is meant to allow a windowmanger-independent way to support transparency.
