Description Colin Guthrie 2008-07-14 21:16:35 UTC
Version:           2.0 (using Devel)
Installed from:    Compiled sources
OS:                Linux

Regardless of the whether the option was chosen in the settings, I cannot get a translucent OSD. This is using a recent snapshot of amarok and of compiz (rather than kwin).
Comment 1 Mark Kretschmann 2008-07-15 21:53:31 UTC
Yes, this seems to be a problem with NVidia cards/drivers. Translucency only works if set to 0.5. Anything else between 0.0 and 1.0 doesn't really work.

We'll have to investigate.
Comment 2 Colin Guthrie 2008-07-16 10:18:21 UTC
FWIW, I'm on Intel... and also I cannot see where to change the translucency to 0.5... Not poked in code yet but is this a constant I'd have to change there or am I missing something obvious?
Comment 3 Maarten Wisse 2008-07-16 21:52:44 UTC
confirmed. I'm on Intel as well. No translucency and it cannot be configured yet.

SVN commit 843404 by markey:

Make the OSD translucency actually work. (minus a bug that amarok needs a restart for it to take affect -> TODO)
