Hello all,

Now that we've all setup FC3 quite to our liking, where are all the eye candies that Xorg 6.8 promises? I seem to remember the tranparency and shadow being touted a while ago.

Cheers,
Asun

Is it still slow as the article mentioned? Also, are there any prepackaged software that already takes advantage of this? I noticed some screenshot for KDE with the transparent effect.

I would send a PM to that person who posted the screenshot. I have not seen a how to yet.

The effects were pretty slow but I have not yet tried to install the Nvidia drivers. Maybe that speeds the whole thing up a bit.

Here is one screenshot in KDE, but this is a Gentoo installation (not mine).

It is definitely Xorg's transparency. The pseudo transparency will not show any applications between active window and desktop's wallpaper.
