Description Mathias Homann 2005-11-14 06:45:01 UTC
Version:           3.4.2 (using KDE 3.4.3 Level "b" , SUSE 9.2 UNSUPPORTED)
Compiler:          gcc version 3.3.4 (pre 3.3.5 20040809)
OS:                Linux (i686) release 2.6.8-24.18-default

kruler would be more useful if you could swith it to transparent.
Comment 1 Mathias Soeken 2008-12-16 12:57:26 UTC
It is possible in KDE 4.x if kwin composite effects are enabled. Just press Alt+F3 and adjust transparency at the Opacity menu item.

But I see that this is no easy way.

SVN commit 913428 by msoeken:

kruler is now configurable to be (semi-)transparent. There is a new menu "Opacity" in the context menu 
with a slider to set windowOpacity. This value is stored and restored in the settings file.
