I installed the elementary-transparent-theme and used the tweak tools to change the GTK+ and metacity themes to transparent. The transparent theme works fine in GTK+ windows, but in metacity windows (such as google chrome, libre office, etc) it doesn`t work (white bar instead of transparent bar). Anyone has an idea of how can I solve this? Thanks.

White bar appears instead of transparent bar

Metacity does not support the alpha (transparency) channel.
