Compton is a standalone compositor for X, useful with window managers that do not provide native compositing functionality. It is a fork of xcompmgr-dana.
Enable this repo in dnf, then install compton:
dnf copr enable dschubert/compton dnf install compton
Compton can be run manually using the following command:
Various command-line options are available; furthermore a configuration file can be used (
/etc/xdg/compton.conf). A sample configuration can be found in
/usr/share/doc/compton/. Refer to the
compton manpage for more information.
You may want to autostart compton with your X session. Depending on your desktop environment or window manager, there will be various ways to do this. E.g. in i3 you might add
exec --no-startup-id "compton -b"
-b option will run compton as a background process or daemon).
Note that compton has not been actively maintained for some time and that there are some known issues.
