Opacity not working in alacritty or kitty with their configuration files

This picom transparency badly effecting on ranger or lf file manager image preview’s. So decided to kill picom and give transparency with their own config files. I set opacity: 0.8 in . config/alacritty/alacritty.yml and also tried background_opacity. the remaining things like “x offset , padding , font, cursor” are working perfectly fine except transparency…

And advance Big thanks for helping…

Hmm. Just curious, what driver are you using? Nouveau per chance? Because I use Nouveau, I recently started using the venerable and very simple xcompmgr for my compositor. I like the fade in and out effects. :slight_smile:

I am not using any external graphic card only intel integrated 1gb , and my installation of Manjaro i3 was with default open source drivers

Hmm. Looks like there are not many picom users in the group.

Xcompmgr is so darn easy, you might want to give it a try. Just click and download to install then put it in autostart. Here is a basic config using command line switches. It gives fade in fade out effects.

xcompmgr -f -O .0.37
