[SOLVED] How to change window opacity by mouse wheel or shortcut ?

I tried some advice here (https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2228495),
but it doesn't work. I want window opacity be changed on mouse wheel or on shortcut pressed (like in KDE).

And if you're looking for a keyboard shortcut to toggle the transparency off and on, create a keyboard shortcut for the following command:

bash -c "[[ $(xfconf-query -c xfwm4 -p /general/frame_opacity) -gt 0 ]] && xfconf-query -c xfwm4 -p /general/frame_opacity -s 0 || xfconf-query -c xfwm4 -p /general/frame_opacity -s 100"

Though I think it'd be cooler if we could make it with just one command/shortcut, making it a toggle... Try:

xfconf-query -c xfwm4 -p /general/zoom_desktop -T

In that case, if you have access to transset-df (look in your distro's repositories) you can use this shortcut command:

transset-df -at 0.15

...the last number is a float to indicate the transparency level from 0.0 (transparent) to 1.0 (opaque) of the currently active window.
