Description Jonas Kölker 2008-11-02 06:46:23 UTC
Steps to reproduce:

1. Open up a bunch of windows (say, four xterms)
2. Adjust their opacity to be all over the scale
3. Activate scale
4. MouseOver the windows.  Note how the in-window contents move to 100% opacity, while the window decoration stays at the opacity it had pre-scale.

4-fixed. It would look more unweird if the borders had their opacity adjusted the same way the contents did.

(version: 1:0.7.8-0ubuntu4)

I can't reproduce that. Scale doesn't change the opacity of hovered windows here, it only changes opacity and brightness of non-hovered windows.

Do you have any special plugins enabled?
Comment 2 Jonas Kölker 2008-11-24 02:15:41 UTC
Here's my plugin list (with abbreviated names; I'm a lazy typer):

color filter
bicubic filter
fading windows
window decos
wobbly windows
mouse pos poll
regex match
resize info
scale addons
scale win title filter
sess mgmt
vid playback
extra wm actions
place windows
resize window
static app switcher
window rules
move window

I don't know what special means, so I can't point any of them out.

And you did turn the opacity down unsuably, *insanely* low on one of the hovered windows (before hovering, of course)?

Here's a short video showing it happening.  This is with fresh-outta'-git compiz.  Note how the almost-transparent window becomes jet black as I mouseOver it.  Note also how it slides into place, then jumps from being dark to being almost-transparent again.
