Take a look at the personal folder.

There is a script about variety in there.

I have run again variety script in the personnal folder , no change
So I installed a new package nitrogen and I could have a wallpaper in the background of the desktop :) ,
but now I'm realising that I have no transparancy and it's this reason why I wanted a background :roll:
is there anything wrong with compton ?

Check if compton is running.
Check if you have the original compton - /etc/skel IF you install archmerge-i3wm git

If you added lines to compton - that might be the reason. If there is any code wrong in there, Compton will not launch. No transparency no shadows.
