Yoper and menu transparency
Posted 14 November 2004 - 05:37 PM
I have been messin' round the last days with Yoper, and althought this distro truly rocks, there is one thing I can't get fixed: menu transparency.
No matter how often I disable GUI-effects or the menu transparency itself, it get's miraculously enabled again. I have now "bypassed" the transparency effect by "patching" the theme file and using a PNG as menu-background, still though: any ideas anybody as to what might cause this strange persistency of "enabled transparency"?
Info: YOS v2, KDE 3.3, XFree (I suppose XFree 4.4.0)
thanx in advance

I've tried out every single effect-setting that is possible but for some reason KDE keeps switching back to transparency with always the same transp. value of "87%". Anyway ... I'll just go with the non-transparent, bitmap-patched version of the themes.

Thanx a lot dude, I only found the cutesie little "Reference"-link in your posting today. Indeed this thread answered the thing: if you operate as root you are stuck with transparent menus. Normal users can disable the effect.
As during the setup of a machine I usually work as root, I didn't even think about this possibility. Thanx again for providing this link!
