RGBA support in update-manager

Bug #190782 reported by Jon on 2008-02-10
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
update-manager (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: update-manager

I have created a patch which enabled transparent themeing of the update-manager dialog, please see the screen shot at


This makes use of the new transparency capabilities of the Murrine GTK+ theme engine, you can read more about these changes here:


The patch for this can be found here:


This is all 100% degradable - so users without a composite window manager will see no difference, it is also super fast still! You will need the latest version of Murrine which can be found at


Or to check out the code and compile the latest version use:

bzr branch http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~cimi/murrine/trunk

Look forward to your feedback


Closing the bug in Murrine as it is not actually effected. Confirming for update manager, please set importance to wishlist.

Changed in murrine:
status: New → Invalid
Changed in update-manager:
status: New → Confirmed

Could you attach the patch to the bug report? It's not accessible anymore and thus this wish can never be fulfilled, which would be a shame.

Closing as wontfix -- gtk+2 stuff is obsolete these days and the patch sadly dissapeared from the net.

Changed in update-manager (Ubuntu):
status: Confirmed → Won't Fix
