Translucent Windows on Ubuntu 8.04
I tried the demo given at,
Running it on Webstart of Java 6 u6 and Java 6 u10 beta build 23 makes no difference.
In both cases, changing the shape of the window works. But translucency does not. Even the slider is disabled.
When run with "Enable the per-pixel translucency effect" turned on, the selected shape is displayed as a black patch in the middle of the screen.
If the check box is off, a shaped opaque windows is displayed. Am I missing something?
Has anyone had luck with translucency on any Linux distribution? Or is it another Windows-only feature in Java 6 u10?
I use Ubuntu 8.04 with Gnome.
