I recently changed from using xterm to sakura:
(primarily because the fonts in xterm look bad when scaled x1.5, and I

XMonad, through which my desktop background image shows.
I would like for this to not happen - as it is distracting.
You can see the unwanted effect here:

I have tried searching the sakura code and changing random things
related to border, rgba, and transparent, but my wild guesses have not
Does anyone have any good ideas?
I am using running compton (I like the pretty, transparent
notifications), in case that matters.
OH! I just tried killing compton, and that removed the problem! I guess
I should bark up another, uhm, mailing list?
Hm, I found this: https://github.com/chjj/compton/issues/139 which is
the same problem with another wm, compton, and sakura, and it seems the
wm was fixed - so maybe I am in the right place after all?
There are some hints here: https://github.com/chjj/compton/issues/240
about what might be the same issue in xmonad.
"Hackers are lazy, in the same way that Adam Sjøgren
mathematicians and modernist architects are lazy: asjo at koldfront.dk
they hate anything extraneous."
