i3/urxvt transparency [SOLVED]

Hello  fellow archers, I am having a problem enabling transparency for urxvt using i3. I really just want psudo transparency but the commands in the wiki don't work. I even tried it with xcompmgr -c & in my .xsession but it still didn't work.

Any ideas?

Re: i3/urxvt transparency [SOLVED]

As Inxible posted, this is what you need:

URxvt.transparent:   true
URxvt.shading:       20

I laugh, yet the joke is on me
