xcompmgr — sample X compositing manager

Synopsis

xcompmgr [-d display] [-r radius] [-o opacity] [-l left-offset] [-t top-offset] [-acCfFnsS]

Description

xcompmgr is a sample compositing manager for X servers supporting the XFIXES, DAMAGE, and COMPOSITE extensions. It enables basic eye-candy effects.

Options

-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.
-a
Automatic server-side compositing. This instructs the server to use the standard composition rules. Useful for debugging.
-c
Client-side compositing with soft shadows and translucency support.
-f
When -c is specified, enables a smooth fade effect for transient windows like menus, and for all windows on hide and restore events.
-n
Simple client-side compositing.
-s
Server-side compositing with hard-edged shadows.
-C
When -c is specified, attempts to avoid painting shadows on panels and docks.
-F
When -f is specified, also enables the fade effect when windows change their opacity, as with transset(1).
-S
Enables synchronous operation. Useful for debugging.
