I'm using Puppy Tahr 6.0.2.

Last week, I was able to specify the level of window transparency via 3 sliders (normal, moving, resizing). I'm on a fresh tahrsave folder now and I'm unsure how to get back to that.

I'm pretty sure I had another window manager that I must have downloaded, but I can't remember which one it was. :P

I played around with transparency a while back but ended up not adopting it.

Are we talking about rox window or rxvt terminal window.

I think there is a config program in settings menu for rxvt.

I'm not familiar with RXVT. Is that something that is in puppy by default? I definitely don't remember downloading that.

I downloaded some window managers the past few days, trying to recreate what I did last week. I just learned how to back up my save folder by zipping it up. So I'm free to download all sorts of stuff because I can now revert to saved.

One of them installs a Find 'n Run entry called "Window Manager Tweaks". That's what brings up the transparency settings for the windows. Unfortunately, I have no idea which window manager did that. I tried IceWM, Blackbox, Nextstop, lwm, etc.

Sweet. That was it. I forgot that were window managers in quickpet.

Thanks. I owe you one.
