Subject: Using sakura with xmonad

Hi.

I recently changed from using xterm to sakura:

 * https://code.launchpad.net/sakura

(primarily because the fonts in xterm look bad when scaled x1.5, and I
have to do that on my stationary monitor...)

The sakura windows automatically get a thin transparent border with
XMonad, through which my desktop background image shows.

I would like for this to not happen - as it is distracting.

You can see the unwanted effect here:

compared to what it looks like with xterm:

 * http://koldfront.dk/misc/xmonad/uxterm-xmonad.png

I have tried searching the sakura code and changing random things
related to border, rgba, and transparent, but my wild guesses have not
been fruitful.

Does anyone have any good ideas?

I am using running compton (I like the pretty, transparent
notifications), in case that matters.

OH! I just tried killing compton, and that removed the problem! I guess
I should bark up another, uhm, mailing list?

Hm, I found this: https://github.com/chjj/compton/issues/139
which is
the same problem with another wm, compton, and sakura, and it seems the
wm was fixed - so maybe I am in the right place after all?

There are some hints here: https://github.com/chjj/compton/issues/240
about what might be the same issue in xmonad.

  Best regards,

    Adam
