I need transparency in gtk under freerunner. So I compiled this code

#include <gtk/gtk.h>

gint main(gint argc, gchar **argv)
    GtkWidget *window;

    gtk_init(&argc, &argv);

    window = gtk_window_new(GTK_WINDOW_TOPLEVEL);

    gtk_window_set_opacity(GTK_WINDOW(window), 0.1);



under my desktop and it shows transparent window. Then I compiled it for
shr-u with crosscompiler from tmp/cross folder of shr-u sources. And on
freerunner it shows not transparent window. So Is it possible to create
transparent gtk apps in shr or other distribs for freerunner? And how if
it possible?
