After update the newest deepin desktop i found that my deepin terminal cannot change backgroud to transparency, my deepin desktop version is 15.11 and my terminal version is 5.0.0
If you are using Kwin WM you will need to install
You may also find this thread helpful:
systemsettings isn't needed for transparency to work.
As always @oberon you are correct. However there are the following conditions currently.
- Transparency on mutter is broken / not present (slider is gone) requiring the user to install
deepin-kwinbreaks transparency in the menu and device center (settings) It renders the background with a grainy texture requiring the user to install
systemsettingsand adjusting the blur settings. I am not at my machine right now to get the specifics.
deepin-kwin-devalso breaks transparency needing
systemsettingsto correct however the settings only apply to the settings menu and the application menu remains grainy.
This may have changed over the past few days so correct me if I am mistaken and I apologize in advance if that is indeed the case.
edit: I believe the grainyness was present in the terminal background as well in kwin and broken in mutter. I will be reinstalling tonight and I will check again and report back tonight.
I believe @ant still uses mutter.
what version of
deepin-wm is Manjaro using ?
deepin-wm 1.9.38-3 fixes them issues
the trouble is though, everybody installed
deepin-kwin-dev to get the effects back.
I created a file in autostart with
deepin-wm --replaceinstead of uninstalling deepin-kwin, I wasn't sure if it break something.
It doesn't always the latest unstable ISO uses Kwin. The Iso before that used deepin-wm.
And I apologize @oberon I should have said
deepin-wm as opposed to mutter.
That is why I asked if the OP was using Kwin. If not the current work around is to install
deepin-kwin which after updating breaks transparency so the OP would then need to install systemsettings to make adjustments. like i said I'll do a fresh metal install tonight and post back in the iso thread.
deepin-wm Is installed it just doesn't use it,
deepin-kwin-dev over rides
deepin-wm that's why I did the
deepin-wm --replace file
also if you are using
deepin-kwin-dev you have to enable blur by adding it manually to
kwinrc file or using
deepin-kwin-dev has very few settings in its
keep us posted
Thank you for sharing your insight!
Manjaro deepin-wm version is still pkgrel 1 but we are about to sync with Archlinux.
what is/was the idea behind creating
deepin-kwin-dev and not using
Both are available on Manjaro. The idea with deepin-kwin-dev is to update the package whenever there will be upstream commits, so we can test the latest version and not have to wait until Arch decides to package it, since Felix has decided to freeze at 0.1.0 for now.
deepin-kwin package should still be the default.
edit: Maybe it will be better to call it deepin-kwin-git. I just decided to use -dev since actually their latest commit is realease tag 5.0.0 - strangely, no commits since July 30 ...
Interesting they fix the
deepin-wm but don't update the
I assumed Manjaro-deepin was using
deepin-kwin-dev but yeah its using default
Might want to add a custom
kwinrc file to the ISO for Manjaro-deepin or include
systemsettings that's assuming your going to be doing another ISO
Let us know and we will give you some feedback
I guess this answers that:
