How to: Setup Xorg X11 and Transparency

This guide is going to show you how to get X.org 7.1 up and running on Linux (the emphasis will be on using Gentoo, but it should work on any other Linux distro as well).

We of course can’t possibly do anything if we are missing X.org. To obtain this in Gentoo is very simple:

emerge --sync
emerge xorg-x11

Once X.org is done building, you will be ready to get started using it. If you previously used X.org, then your config file at /etc/X11/xorg.conf will be used. If you are a XFree86 user moving over, then X.org will automatically load your /etc/X11/XF86Config, but I would recommend renaming the config to xorg.conf for consistency. Read more
