  • Completely rewritten patch with correct implementation of transparency for electron window!
  • It actually running from compiled binaries! No need for electron dependency!
  • No conflicting with official release! You can have installed both!
  • Added support for official marketplace!
  • Added support for flags configuration file!
  • Added support for Wayland!
  • Unblocked proprietary features!
How to change window color?
"workbench.colorCustomizations": {
    //Black window color with 75% transparency (#RRGGBBAA)
    "window.background": "#000000BF"

..assuming you have a customized theme with all other transparent elements!

Building within clean chroot!

You can build package in completely clean environment without conflicting with any local dependencies (latest nodejs package etc..)!

Execute the following commands inside the package directory:

yes | sudo pacman -S devtools
extra-x86_64-build -c && rm *.log
mapfile -t _pkgs <<< "$(printf '%s\n' code-translucent-*.pkg.tar.zst | sort -Vr)"
sudo pacman -U "${_pkgs[0]}"

..or just run "" script!

Guys and girls! Patch is experimental! If there are any problems let me know!

@observ33r I've tried it again, without flags it seems to work, but with flags it is still crashing. I'm pretty sure that my GPU configuration is working.

BTW, Use proprietary vscode (1.86.0-insider) with code-insiders --enable-gl --enable-transparent-visuals --enable-features=UseOzonePlatform,WaylandWindowDecorations --ozone-platform=wayland did not crash. There could be a fix available in the upstream.

@Flysoft: Can't reproduce! Also NVIDIA/wayland/X11 user. First try run directly from terminal without flags "/opt/code-translucent/bin/code-oss" then with wayland flags "/opt/code-translucent/bin/code-oss --enable-features=UseOzonePlatform,WaylandWindowDecorations --ozone-platform=wayland" if it helps. But this is definitely not a packaging problem. Are you sure you have correctly configuired GPU?

Hello, I'm getting stuck when starting this on Wayland with a NVIDIA GPU. note: also tried x11 but still no luck here :(

Now it works, thank you!

observ33r commented on 2023-12-31 17:09 (UTC)

Rollbacked some changes in pkgbuild. Try it now!

Similacrest commented on 2023-12-28 17:30 (UTC)

I tried building from TTY and ran into the same issue. Physical memory consumption barely exceeded 4GB when the build crashed. vscodium builds normally.

@Similacrest: Yes, but do you have enough free memory? ("free -m" available column). You can try build from TTY without xorg/wayland running ;)
