it will not. AfterStep is using simplifyed transparency algorithm,
and if you do not set your background with Pager or asetroot
it will not work.

>Aterm do it.
Aterm has more sophisticated logic for doing transparency, and
that enables it to handle it properly.

>How can i solve this problem ?

xglobe needs to be modifyed to allow for transparency in AfterStep.
That is easy modifycation - just a matter of adding few lines of code.
If somebody is willing to do that - I can give a consultation.
