Package: marco
Version: 1.12.1-1
Severity: normal

I have a problem with Compton and Virtualbox, as described here:

In order to overcome the problem, I'd like to follow the suggestred
solution, but I cannot find any way to pass configuration instructions
to Compton.  I think it is calle by Marco, but that's all I can say.

Is there a configuration file?
Are there docs somewhere on how to pass options to Compton?
Is there a GUI for that purpose?

Here is what I see with ps that Compton is called:

compton --config /dev/null --backend glx --vsync opengl-swc --detect-rounded-corners --paint-on-overlay --glx-no-stencil --glx-swap-method undefined --unredir-if-possible --inactive-opacity-override --mark-wmwin-focused -r 10 -o 0.225 -l -12 -t -12 -c -C -G --shadow-exclude ! name~='' --shadow-exclude name = 'Notification' --shadow-exclude name = 'Plank' --shadow-exclude name = 'Docky' --shadow-exclude name = 'Kupfer' --shadow-exclude name *= 'compton' --shadow-exclude class_g = 'Conky' --shadow-exclude class_g = 'Kupfer' --shadow-exclude class_g = 'Synapse' --shadow-exclude class_g ?= 'Notify-osd' --shadow-exclude class_g ?= 'Cairo-dock' --shadow-exclude class_g = 'Cairo-clock' --shadow-exclude _GTK_FRAME_EXTENTS@:c

What I need is to add one more --shadow-exclude option for Virtualbox.
