I was using Cellwriter yesterday, and decided that it would be cool to make it transparent, so it doesn’t cover what is behind it. To do this I used Compiz.
To do this, make sure you have the advanced settings manager. It is located at System > Preferences > Advanced Desktop Effect Settings. If it isn’t there, install it in Add/Remove.
Now open it up. The top item should be ‘General Options’. Open it. Go to the ‘Opacity Settings’ tab. Now, you can add a new rule. The Cellwriter window has the title ‘Cellwriter’ always, and none of my other windows do (usually), so I based my rule off of that. Click ‘Add’. In the field, type ‘title=CellWriter’. Then type in 85 for the value. The change should be immediate.
Note that other rules can be created in this way as well.
