So a cool feature that puts a smile on my face is the Desktop Effect Translucency. I have it set to around 90% for inactive windows.
However, right now, I have two instances of LibreOffice Calc, 3 instances of Okular (small pdfs), Gwneview, firefox (6 tabs), and Kate running.
According to System Monitor, this is taking up 3.4 gigabytes, out of the 8 I have available.
But Translucnecy seems to be locked now on all windows, even active ones. So its really distracting that reading in firefox, I can see through to the window behind.
If I try to close a window (such as Kate), it’ll show as closed but the image will still be frozen on my desktop. So I can see the instance of Kate there, but I can’t interact with it (becuase obviously the app is closed).
It’s really annoying and I"m not sure exactly why it happens; but I have noticed it when I’m doing a little more multi-taksing (having a handful of windows open as I outlined above).
The solution is to restart (or restart the compositor by first disabling it using Shift Alt f12)
Is anyone else experiencing this? Is there a way to fix it?
