Since you also mention konqueror:
To get transparency in KDE, go to Control Center -> Desktop -> Window Behaviour. There's a "translucency" tab, which is where you can enable all sorts of effects.

It's possible in Xfce but I haven't found the old HOWTO here on the forum.

Fluxbox is a smaller window manager, that uses less resources than xfce and kde. I'm not sure if it has transparancy.

There are transparent options in xfce.  You can find them in Menu--->Settings--->Window Manager Tweaks
Under the Compositor tab.

Hope thats what you are looking for.

Add this to /etc/X11/xorg.conf:

Quote
Section "Extensions"
Option "Composite" "on"
EndSection
