[SOLVED] cant get Xcompmgr to work how i want

hi
I have just followed the wiki on here to install and use Xcompmgr, I then went to the fluxbox wiki for Xcompmgr to see if i could get it to work properly. no luck!
Xcompmgr works fine, but i cant control how it works! when I run xcompmgr -c in terminal, it all kicks in fine, but everything goes to 50% transparency!! ideally, I want it to start with no transparency, then use transset to set individual apps transparency!
thanks

Hey,
If flux works similarly to openbox, if you put "xcompmgr &" into you autostart file (~/.fluxbox/startup I believe), this should start xcompmgr without affecting anything initially. Once your logged in, now with xcompmgr running, you can launch apps with transset.
I've only had a brief mess around with transset and only use transparency for terminal, so apologies if this doesn't work / isn't what you're looking for.

  • I cant get my backlight on How do you turn it on?

    I cant get my backlight on. how do you turn it on?

    Do smc reset
    http://support.apple.com/kb/ht3964
    also
    Uncheck the Automatically adjust brightness option in System Preferences / Displays. That enables manual control. Same applies to the keyboard backlight. (Although mine works with this item checked)

  • I cant get ECWID to work on my mobile devices, it only seems to use the desktop site rather that the Tablet or iPhone

    I cant get ECWID to work on my mobile devices, it only seems to use the desktop site rather that the Tablet or iPhone? Can anyone help me?

    Hi Jim,
    We’ll be glad to help you.
    Ecwid supports responsive layout, which means that the store pages can adapt to the visitor's screen width on the fly and keep the layout clean and nice. Your products and categories lists will be fit for any window's size, as Ecwid will calculate the most suitable number of products or categories in row automatically. In other words, Ecwid looks great on any mobile devices. You can check how your Ecwid store may look on smartphones and tablets, if you see your Starter Site (what it is).
    However, if you want Ecwid reveals itself in all its glory, you should embed your Ecwid store into website, which also support responsive layout, because if the site doesn’t adapt to size screen, Ecwid is not able to determine how it should be changed since it’s just a part of the site.
    We’ve checked your site and found that you used Adobe Muse for building your site. Using Adobe Muse, you can create alternate site layouts for web content to be displayed on desktop, smartphones, and tablets. Nonetheless, your site has a layout for desktops only, that’s why it looks the same on all devices. You can learn how to create those alternate layouts in Adobe Muse, by reading “Creating a Website for Mobile Devices” article.
    I hope this helps! But if there are any questions, don’t hesitate to reach us out on Ecwid forums.

  • Strange problem. I have upgraded to OSX 10.9.1 but cant get wifi to work so forced to be hard wired. Any inputs appreciated.

    Hi All,
    Strange problem. I have upgraded to OSX 10.9.1 but cant get wifi to work so forced to be hard wired. Any inputs appreciated. Problem is I cant even reinstall it as I saw on a thread reason, it needs wifi to begin.

    It only needs an internet connection - wired or wireless.
    Fixing a Mavericks Installation Problem
    How to manage a failed OS X Mavericks installation | MacFixIt - CNET Reviews.
    Try these in order:
    1. a. Resetting your Mac's PRAM and NVRAM
        b. Intel-based Macs: Resetting the System Management Controller (SMC)
    2. Restart the computer in Safe Mode, then restart again, normally. If this doesn't help, then:
         Boot to the Recovery HD: Restart the computer and after the chime press and hold down the
         COMMAND and R keys until the Utilities menu screen appears. Alternatively, restart the computer and
         after the chime press and hold down the OPTION key until the boot manager screen appears.
         Select the Recovery HD and click on the downward pointing arrow button.
    3. Repair the Hard Drive and Permissions: Upon startup select Disk Utility from the Utilities menu. Repair the Hard Drive and Permissions as follows.
    When the recovery menu appears select Disk Utility. After DU loads select your hard drive entry (mfgr.'s ID and drive size) from the the left side list.  In the DU status area you will see an entry for the S.M.A.R.T. status of the hard drive.  If it does not say "Verified" then the hard drive is failing or failed. (SMART status is not reported on external Firewire or USB drives.) If the drive is "Verified" then select your OS X volume from the list on the left (sub-entry below the drive entry,) click on the First Aid tab, then click on the Repair Disk button. If DU reports any errors that have been fixed, then re-run Repair Disk until no errors are reported. If no errors are reported click on the Repair Permissions button. Wait until the operation completes, then quit DU and return to the main menu. Select Restart from the Apple menu.
    4. Reinstall Lion/Mountain Lion, Mavericks: Reboot from the Recovery HD. Select Reinstall Lion/Mountain Lion, Mavericks from the Utilities menu, and click on the Continue button.
    Note: You will need an active Internet connection. I suggest using Ethernet if possible because it is three times faster than wireless.

  • Set up ipod touch to cox email, ive tried everything and cant get it to work. thanks!

    set up ipod touch to cox email, ive tried everything and cant get it to work. thanks!

    Here's an answer from the net:
    Go to Settings/Mail,contacts,calendars/Add account choose other, choose Add Mail Account. Fill in name, email address, password and description on the screen that comes up. Save those.
    One the next screen tat comes up click om POP in the first line then fil in the host name as
    spop.west.cox.net or spop.east.cox.net or the one to go with your region.
    Note that is not a misprint, that is spop (secure pop)
    Fill in your username one more time (the password should have carried over from previously)
    Fill in your outgoing mail server like smtp.west.cox.net (change for your region) and click Save.
    When all the settings are verified a checkmark will appear next to them all and you are good to go.
    If it says something like "can't connect via SSL would you like to ..." then you probably missed the step about selecting POP on the second screen and are trying IMAP so go back and try over with POP. Or perhaps mistyped soemthing.
    Once everything is working you can go back into the settings and see that it has automatically connected on port 995 and that SSL is on
    Note that you probably won't be able to send email from a wifi in a cafe or similar as cox won't let you connect to their smtp from outside their network.
    I haven't tried receiving mail from a non cox connected wifi yet but I suspect it will work just fine. Anyway these settings work for me using my ipod to my home wifi router connected to cox.
    I could not find a definitive guide when I searched so I hope this helps other folks trying to configure this.
    I got the spop from "Mail for Mac OS X 10.5 configure SSL / POP" here:

    Go to Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs (Win XP) or Programs and Features (later)
    Remove all of these items in the following order:
    iTunes
    Apple Software Update
    Apple Mobile Device Support (if this won't uninstall move on to the next item)
    Bonjour
    Apple Application Support
    Reboot, download iTunes, then reinstall, either using an account with administrative rights, or right-clicking the downloaded installer and selecting Run as Administrator.
    The uninstall and reinstall process will preserve your iTunes library and settings, but ideally you would back up the library and your other important personal documents and data on a regular basis. See this user tip for a suggested technique.

  • Cant get Frontrow to work after installing 10.4.3 and updating it

    I made a terrible mistake today and moved all my files from my harddisk to my external harddisk. I had to reinstall everything but I cant get frontrow to work properly. I cant find it on my external harddisk either.
    Can someone please help me with this tricky question.

    Winbo:
    Can you describe your problem in a bit more detail? Why did you decide to move your files? What files did you move? What method did you use to move them? Did you move them over completely by way of backing up and then erased your disk prior to moving them back?
    Any other information you can provide will make it easier to make suggestions on your issue.
    Good luck.
