Code:
# emerge -a firefox
These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

Calculating dependencies... done!

!!! All ebuilds that could satisfy "firefox" have been masked.
!!! One of the following masked packages is required to complete your request:
- www-client/firefox-13.0::gentoo (masked by: package.mask)
/usr/portage/profiles/package.mask:
# Samuli Suominen <ssuominen@gentoo.org> (15 Jul 2012)
# Replaced by the new 4.8.4 release of kde-base/konqueror.
# Removal in 30 days.

- www-client/firefox-13.0 ::gentoo (masked by: package.mask)


Amazing! Firefox will soon be out of gentoo. I hope this is a joke!

In fact, this doesn't look to be a joke, even if the real message is the following:

Code:
# emerge -a transset-df

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

Calculating dependencies... done!

!!! All ebuilds that could satisfy "transset-df" have been masked.
!!! One of the following masked packages is required to complete your request:
- x11-misc/transset-df-6::x-test (masked by: package.mask)
/usr/portage/profiles/package.mask:
# Samuli Suominen <ssuominen@gentoo.org> (25 Jun 2012)
# Replaced by the new 1.0.0 release of x11-apps/transset.
# Removal in 30 days.

- x11-misc/transset-df-6::gentoo (masked by: package.mask)


I copied the ebuild over my personal test overlay. Just in case this is not a joke!

Looking at

http://cgit.freedesktop.org/xorg/app/transset/

it appears that it is a rationalisation of code on Freedesktop

No, no, no. That's just a typo that ssuominen made. In fact, deep laid plans are under way by the Gentoo developers to standardize on Internet Explorer. :wink:

According to the commit history the -df code has been merged into transset, so maybe you should verify that before filing reports.

For me, as user, the reference is the doc of both software. The man page of transset, as we can see this is the last 1.0.0 version:
Code:
TRANSSET(1)                                                        TRANSSET(1)



NAME
       transset - Set transparency on a window

SYNOPSIS
       transset [-d display] n

DESCRIPTION
       transset  is a simple program for X servers supporting the XFIXES, DAM‐
       AGE, and COMPOSITE extensions.  It lets the user set  the  transparency
       on a window.

OPTIONS
       n      Where  n  is  a number from 0 to 1, zero being transparent and 1
              being opaque

BUGS
       Probably.   Please  report  any  you  find  to   https://bugs.freedesk‐
       top.org/enter_bug.cgi?product=xorg.

AUTHORS
       Matthew Hawn



X Version 11                    transset 1.0.0                     TRANSSET(1)


The help of transset-df:
Code:
: transset-df --help
usage: transset-df [-options ...] [opacity]
options:
    -h, --help           display this message
    -t, --toggle         force toggle of opacity
    -c, --click          select by clicking on window (default)
    -p, --point          select the window currently under the cursor
    -a, --actual         select the actual window
    -n, --name NAME      select by name, NAME is matched as regular expression
    --no-regex           don't use regular expression for matching name
    -i, --id             select by window id
        --inc            increase by the given opacity
        --dec            decrease by given opacity
    -m, --min OPACITY    minimum possible opacity (default = 0)
    -x, --max OPACITY    maximum possible opacity (default = 1)
    -v, --verbose        print some debug info
    -V, --version        print version number



And yes, you are right, if I run the following and non documented transset command:
Code:
transset --help
usage: transset [-options ...] [opacity]
options:
    -h, --help           display this message
    -t, --toggle         force toggle of opacity
    -c, --click          select by clicking on window  (default)
    -p, --point          select the window currently under the cursor
    -a, --actual         select the actual window
    -n, --name NAME      select by name, NAME is matched as regular expression
    --no-regex           don't use regular expression for matching name
    -i, --id             select by window id
        --inc            increase by the given opacity
        --dec            decrease by given opacity
    -m, --min OPACITY    minimum possible opacity  (default = 0)
    -x, --max OPACITY    maximum possible opacity  (default = 1)
    -v, --verbose        print some debug info
    -V, --version        print version number


I didn't try it before, because it is not documented into the man page. So, I will change this bug into a man page issue.

John .. those developers that survived the recent back-to-the-future coup have infact about-faced and are fully behind Generalisimo Larry in the promotion of Mosaic :)
