It depends if you are using Compiz or not.

If you are then go to CCSM/Window Management/Move Window and drag the opacity slider to 0%

If you are not using Compiz then I don't know the answer.

I can't imagine why it would be important to you either, but there we go, we're all different I suppose :lol:

I want to disable it because I'm weak on the video side and don't want to see the ghosting.

Then I guess you probably aren't using Compiz? Or if you are then switch it off, that will do a lot more for you than making dragged windows transparent.
