Compositor [compton > picom ]
« on: April 05, 2020, 08:38:55 pm »
I tried to install "compton". Search revealed it has been replaced by "picom".
Any suggestion for a compositor for Sparky LXQT?

Compton hasn't been developed for years now, but it should still be part of debian repo. Run
Code: [Select]
sudo apt update && sudo apt install compton What it says?

Picom is compton fork under development but unfortunately there is no Debian package for it (afaik).

Copy and paste here content of /etc/apt/sources.list file.
