[Bug 1436553] Re: Transparent windows render black with Gtk3.16 and compiz


This is NOT FIXED by compiz, at least not in Debian Unstable
with gtk 3.17.9 and has not been fixed on my system by any version I
have tried except the version I built myself from
extents-to-net-supported with the "gtk" directory replaced with a more
recent one for Metacity 3.16 support.

Source code for this available at 

Debian packages for Debian Unstable also published in the same article, which is a collection of MATE-gtk3 packages plus compiz and network-manager-gnome packages:

I have yet to get compositing of CSD apps to work on any other compiz
version. The modified MATE packages (which support a special transparent
panel menu theme) have composition support forced and will work with any
version of Compiz, but Debian does not patch GNOME apps to remove CSD so
this issue is important there.
