FNS-CompConfigurator is used to configure composition like shadows, fading, translucency, and more. Supported composite managers are: xcompmgr and compton.
A composite manager is capable to render drop shadows and, with the use of the transset/transset-df utility, primitive window transparency.
Two composite manager are supported:
XcompMgr is the standard composition manager for the X Composite extension. It implements shadows, fading, proper translucency, and more.
Compton is a compositor based on xcompmgr. In addition to shadows, fading and translucency, it implements window frame opacity control, inactive window transparency, and shadows on argb windows.
