Remove Fading and Transparency in i3
Today when I booted my Endeavour OS Linux machine and logged in to i3, I noted that there was a very annoying fade when switching between workspaces and also semi-transparency on inactive windows. I recently upgraded all packages with
yay, but haven’t touched any config in a while, so I was confused.
It turned out to be the settings in
/etc/xdg/picom.conf that I needed to change by copying it to the home folder and disable fading.
Update: I3wm started picom automatic also it is commented? describes this problem. However, I didn’t really see how to completely disable it using the config file (the way it was before the update), so I instead removed the package (
yay -R picom)
