my desktop.
I've tried many different ways but none of those methods did make an
Among those methods :

   - Section "Extensions"
   - option "Composite" "Enable"
   - Option "RENDER" "Enable"
   - EndSection


   - Option "RenderAccel" "1"
   - Option "AllowGLXWithComposite" "on"

(into the "Device" Section)

to my /etc/X11/xorg.conf

I've the following video card : Hercule 3d Prophet 4500 TV OUT 64MB. (i

I'm now sure that my failure to set true transparency is due to a problem of
configuration but i do not know what to set up.
If anyone have any idea of how to make transparency working...
