8 how to make sure pywal keeps transparency

In previous article about python-pywal we installed some extra software.

We lost our transparency and we will change it after making a backup of Xresources. That is a hidden file. Use CTRL + H to show hidden files.

We change these lines in ~/Xresources and delete the “!” sign.

!URxvt*transparent: true
!URxvt*shading: 30

You can always reload Xresources with this command. I like to log out to make sure all applications are loaded and give me a fresh start.

xrdb ~/.Xresources
