Description Nolan Eakins 2004-09-13 22:28:40 UTC
In 6.8.0 kuickshow will only show a blank window.
Comment 1 Jakub Argasiński 2004-09-21 05:56:11 UTC
Actually, it happens only if the Composite extension is enabled.
Comment 2 Nolan Eakins 2004-09-21 20:56:47 UTC
With or without xcompmgr actually running. 
Comment 3 Dan Doel 2004-09-23 00:37:02 UTC
This is a result of kuickshow (or whatever library it uses to draw) not 
handling the ARGB visuals exported by Composite correctly. 
As a workaround, for now you can set the environment variable: 
before running kuickshow. In the long run, kuickshow (or the library it uses) 
needs to be rewritten to properly handle the composite visual.
