Hi team,

I'm trying to create a semi-transparent X11 window. My main aim is to
draw a translucent window and some 3D(OpenGL-ES2) objects on top of

Here is the code For a visual depth=24
it says that no ARGB visual is found and if I set visual depth=32 then
I get this error

I'm running X.Org version: 1.7.3, xf86-video-omapfb driver on OMAP3
based BeagleBoard.
xdpyinfo is here

Kindly let me know if I'm missing something.

Thanks for your question.
