now I runned gnash properly, but the background is white and not transparent.
(the border can be turned off by kwin).

is there a possibility to make the background of a SWF file play transparent?

hi, my question is about gnash being able to run a SWF file without a window
and with the transparent background?

(for example If i wanted to make a widget or nice eye-candy on desktop using a simple SWF animation for email notification.

good example is the windows Incredimail program that uses a simple SWF files for their email notification and they are just SWF files played on the desktop withou a border and with a transparent background.

can gnash do it?
I tried to run it, but it writes somethin about not beiing able to find a pixmap_path and closes itself.
