is it possible or has any one made a non standard window in using PB in Linux?

Something like: http://doc.qt.io/qt-4.8/qt-widgets-shap ... ample.html

Thanks

On some window systems

.... Perhaps they specifically mean Windows OS, or have you seen a QT window like that on Linux?

So I just wanted to check it since I havent in a while. And I pulled up xeyes in my package manager and found

Code:
1 extra/xorg-xeyes 1.1.1-3
    Follow the mouse/SHAPE extension X demo


I searched "linux shape extension" on google and found this: https://linux.die.net/man/3/xshape

Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shape_extension

You may take a look into the second code example of this posting which displays a similar clock in a transparent window. But before running the example you have to set the subsystem to "gtk2" because lots of internal changes between GTK+ 2 and 3 make the example code incompatible with the default GTK+ 3 subsystem...
