yes, I read the page before.I mean the background of the window,not the whole.That is ,when I tun xcompmgr, the background of the window should be transparent.

In other words, the issue is that the background of argb windows, or the parts that should be transparent are black right?
Anyway you should've at least posted the command you're using to launch xcompmgr. Do you get any errors if you launch it from command line?

I don't think xcompmgr is actively mainained anymore. You might have better luck with compton for example.
