Description michal kaczmarski 2005-04-19 08:37:09 CEST
I tried to do it but my knowledge is too less. I think port of xcompmgr code for compositor about fades 
will be very great. I did it in very simple methods but Im not happy at all . This port of xcompgr code by 
XFCE developers will be that Im looking for :)

Reproducible: Didn't try
Steps to Reproduce:
1. fading for opacity changes
2. fading for new mapped windows and unmapped windows

Actual Results:  
actual this is not implemented

Expected Results:  
1. fading for opacity changes
2. fading for new mapped windows and unmapped windows

will be great ;)

Yes, this would indeed be great.
Comment 2 ryanohara 2005-08-20 06:36:15 CEST
I would also like to add my support to this.
Comment 3 Richard Stellingwerff 2005-08-20 10:11:47 CEST
I would like to add my support to this feature as well.

I would love this function it gives the kind of mac feeling, without the 2000$
price tag =)

I found a lot of love in this request, but I'd recon that it's not really what the developers have in mind for Xfce...

Comment 6 Aaron 2007-02-15 23:01:48 CET
well, considering theres already a composite manager in xfwm, this would seem like a trivial thing to tack on.
Comment 7 Olivier Fourdan editbugs 2007-02-16 12:02:55 CET
Sure, patches welcome (as long it's well written).
Comment 8 Steve Dodier-Lazaro editbugs 2015-02-07 19:50:51 CET

I'm unsure whether that feature would be implemented with existing libraries or directly within the compositor code. Is the code likely to be any different for X11 and Wayland?

If so, should that bug report be set to a future milestone and looked at if/when Xfwm is ported to be a Wayland compositor?
Comment 9 Olivier Fourdan editbugs 2015-02-07 21:20:13 CET
could be added, I am not against it, but there are more interesting things to do, so a patch would be welcome (and if of good quality would probably be accepted).

Vote for it.
It would really be great
