Then call it 'tweaking' if you like that term better. But hacking is not a negative word in my world. No one thinks you are involved with cybercrimes.
The fact is: if you are running a non-standard system, you are at risk for running into non-standard problems.
It appears that the transparency problem in a new Mint 18.3 VM (or a new Mint 19.2 VM for that matter) was not caused by the Mint upgrade
, but was caused by a VBox update
from 6.0.10 to 6.0.12, (see Note) -- by happenstance, they occurred at the same time. The problem was compounded by the Mint 'System Settings' 'Windows' opacity control not appearing. Today, the 'System Settings' 'Windows' 'Minimum opacity' control does appear but it doesn't work
Note: With the update to VBox 6.0.12, I switched from VBox's VBoxVGA display driver to the VMSVGA display driver as instructed by a VBox pop-over.
Since the problem now appears to be purely a display driver problem, not an upgrade problem with 'Update Manager', This topic is stale and the action should shift to another topic: viewtopic.php?f=208&t=301969
. I trust that you agree.
PS: This is a dead giveaway... I'm writing this in my original, Mint 18 VM. It also now exhibits the transparency problem.
