NAME

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. This is the default mode.

−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.

BUGS

Probably. Please report any you find to http://bugs.freedesktop.org/.
