Compton is a compositor for Openbox and i3. It will take care of transparency and shadows on your system. It ‘beautifies’ your system. But sometimes you need to take a picture and you rather not see the background coming through. How can I do this?

Openbox has a menu to deactivate the compositor (compton). That is one way of deactivating it.

You can type “killall compton” in the .

Or you can set the compton file to never show any transparency ever again.


Tip: i3 and openbox have a separate compton.conf file! Experiment with it.
