#2295 closed defect

Scummvm does not cooperate with xorg and composite

Reported by: SF/xake Owned by: sev-
Priority: normal Component: Port: Linux
Keywords: Cc:


If you enable composite in xorg-x11, starts a
composite-manager (like xcompmgr) and starts scummvm
everything that is black (like the background of the
mainmenu and same thing in MI1 (VGA), have not had time
so far looking into what more games are affected) turns
transparent. It looks neat, but it is not so fun when
you're trying to play a game agains something other
than a black background.

Errr... may you describe from programmer's point of view
what should be done for that? Or at least point to some URL
where that is described. So far we do nothing in that aspect
and use standard SDL calls. Does other SDL applications like
dosbox have that problem? If they do then that is your setup
which makes this problem.

I think this is (if at all) a bug in SDL. More likely, though, it's a bug in
xcompmgr / xorg and the way how they add "compositing" to the X

Yeah, the problem is probably SDL.
Tried to play frozen-bubble this morning, and that game had
the exakt same problem.
