[Solved] compositing manager exception

I'm wandering if I can set some apps (gimp and inkscape) to work without compositing, while everything else works with composite enabled. I've searched around, but found nothing.
I'm using Fedora 18 beta, XFCE 4.10

Why would you want that? I don't think that's possible. Compositing is done by the window manager, and you either have compositing or you don't.

Re: [Solved] compositing manager exception

I'd want it mainly because of window opacity; the transparent windows become somewhat annoying when working with a dialog box and want to see how the image changes.
I know I could disable the composition when working with these programs, and then enable it again, but I'd like something more automatic, an exception in the compositing.

Yes, indeed it was exactly that. Thanks a lot, ozjd.
Now, to try and make it permanent for an app, without running that command every time.
