fvwm-buttons, colorsets and pixmaps

Postby Dominique » Fri Apr 26, 2013 4:28 pm

I want to have a transparent button which display only a png, and when the cursor is mover over the button, or the button is clicked, I want the png to change. I can get it to work, but without transparency on the pixmaps.

So, I try another way, to iconify the button and change it icon picture with FvwmAuto and the Style. It work fine, but give me a lot of flickring at the screen. The flickering is so bad it can even hang mplayer...

EDIT: I was wrong on this. The flickering is due to something else. EndEdit

So I am back to the first case. I try every thing, I can get a transparent button, but as soon I put the pixmaps, the transparent parts of the pixmap never show the root background.
I try with and without background colors, with and withour Alpha and Tint, nothing helped.

Code: Select all

# active items
Colorset 13 \
RootTransparent, Transparent, fg #000000, bg #e5e5e5, \
Pixmap 48x48/categories/Boing_4.png.active.png

# inactive items
Colorset 14 \
RootTransparent, Transparent, fg #000000, bg #e5e5e5, \
Pixmap 48x48/categories/Boing_4.png

Is it possible to archive normal transparency to the root background with a pixmap in a button colorset, and if yes how?
FVWM-Crystal is an easy to use, eye-candy but also powerful desktop environment based on FVWM.
