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 Search revealed it has been replaced by "picom".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 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).

Thats interesting. Debian tracker clearly states that compton is available.

What apt policy compton says?
Copy and paste here content of /etc/apt/sources.list file.
