    Transparent windows on Linux

    Garry Taylor

      Hi all,

      My HTML/JS AIR app uses alpha-blended PNGs to apply a pretty window decoration on the desktop. On Mac and Windows, it looks great and works exactly how I would like. On Linux though (Ubuntu on VirtualBox) the transparency does not work, and I've got a big black border where the alpha blending should be.

       

      Is this expected on Linux, and I should wrap a normal window around instead, or should I expect to see alpha blended windows behave and look the same as on Mac/Windows?

       

      Cheers!
