how do i fix linux window transparency? Answered
how do i fix Linux kolourpaint it is now all messed up. the window is semi transparent. anything in the window that is dark, the more transparent it is. i changed all my settings (anywhere i could find transparency) to opaque and nothing works i found out those change gnome. some programs are KDE, but i cant find settings for them. my problem with this is that i cant read the top menu (File Edit View) when i try to fill in everything black, is just turns completely transparent to whatever is under that window. things that are whiter are less transparent. its not the type of translucency that turns all the window clear. just the darker stuff.
look at the picture for a better understanding. my desktop background is the Macintosh northern lights aurora. you can see the squares i painted. one is black, red, cyan, and gray. they are all transparent. especially the black one.
it seems a few other windows are the same, so it's not kolourpaint thats the problem.
update, it seems that particular KDE based windows are transparent as i describe.(koulorpaint and konqueror ) I'm running gnome (although i have ran KDE on the same mint OS, under menu>administration>login screen )
