[SOLVED]urxvt lost transparency after general update

Hi, after updating the system I lost urxvt transparency, I can recover it using 

urxvt -tr -sh 100

But I dont get the point at .Xdefaults, they were fine till I did the update

! -------------------------------------------------
! file:     ~/.Xdefaults                           
! author:   jason ryan - http://jasonwryan.com/    
! vim:enc=utf-8:nu:ai:si:et:ts=4:sw=4:ft=xdefaults:
! -------------------------------------------------

! Urxvt
URxvt.buffered: true
URxvt.background: #1A1A1A
URxvt.foreground: #999999
URxvt.cursorColor: #5E468C
URxvt.cursorBlink: true
URxvt.geometry: 60x40
URxvt.transparent: true
URxvt.title: Urxvt

! -- Xft settings -- !
Xft.dpi:        96
Xft.antialias:  true
Xft.rgba:       rgba
Xft.hinting:    true
Xft.hinstyle:   hintslight

! borderless and no scrollbar
URxvt*scrollBar_right: false
URxvt*scrollBar: false
URxvt*borderLess: false

! teh transparency stuff
URxvt*inheritPixmap: true
URxvt*tintcolor:#000000 
URxvt*shading: 0

could anyone enlightme about whats wrong in the transparency issue?

thanks in advance

This gives me working transparency:

URxvt.transparent: true
URxvt*shading: 8

Re: [SOLVED]urxvt lost transparency after general update

thx for your input, but must be something else, I still have to add the -tr -sh 100 to get it functional.

Sorry, i overlooked that both lines were already in your config..

Maybe try without the inheritpixmap and tintcolor lines? I have neither in my setup.

Re: [SOLVED]urxvt lost transparency after general update

seems is not related to that, I assume is something around .Xdefaults, cause I use dwm (vainilla) and is not been updated, so must be some X stuff  (that sound nice ...)  ; )

Re: [SOLVED]urxvt lost transparency after general update

That "method" requires xcompmgr, am I wrong? So why don't you check you are running your composite manager?

Hi teh, hola!, wich method do you mean; the -tr -sh ,or the inherited pixmap?  I'm not using xcompmgr as far as I know.

Re: [SOLVED]urxvt lost transparency after general update

Set your shading higher, the setting has changed in the latest update. It is now a value between 0 and 200 with 0 being non-transparent and 200 maximally transparent.
A value of 30 works for me.
