Thanks for the reply!
Alright this is now driving me crazy. I created a new user (in case I
have some weird setting somewhere in my /home) set a wallpaper using feh
saved the following minimal .Xresources:
! Xresources file
! URxvt*shading: 0 to 99 darkens, 101 to 200 lightens
and ran xrdb on it to see if the problem comes from using tintColor
and shading. but nope this gives me a greyish bg (and with shading 100
it works just as before).
Am I missing some library or something like that? I feel pretty much
