Hi all,
since last version of ubuntu (11.04) modification of alpha frame
parameter with e.g:

(modify-frame-parameters nil (list (cons 'alpha 80)))

have no effect.

However it is working fine when set in .Xressources.

The xorg version is 1.10 (not sure as i am not on updated machine, verify).

The code that sets alpha in Emacs was wrong, it made assumptions about window order that isn't true for Compiz. It was a bug for other window managers as well, as they shall copy such properties from the Emacs top level window to any parent it may have put on the Emacs top level window.

Fix checked in for the trunk.

What does the line in .Xresources look like?

It is possible that the resource changed in Ubuntu 11.04.
