Add-on/Method To Make Desktop Anki Transparent?

I have both the recolor and the anki-background images add-on installed but unfortunately, neither of them have an option to make the entire anki user interface transparent. I know it is possible to do this since there’s a guide on reddit that tells you how to do it, but it requires you to compile anki yourself and that is a huge time sink.

Just wondering if someone figured out a better method. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Can you link to that guide?
