[Bug 1292282] Re: background transparency is not working on gnome terminal


bug still occurs on gnome 3.16 w/ gnome-terminal 3.16
transparency can be enabled by editing the profile preferences and changing the slider a bit
my preferred fix is ... use Konsole :)

  background  transparency is not working on gnome terminal

Status in GNOME Terminal:
Status in One Hundred Papercuts:
  Fix Released
Status in gnome-terminal package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  The "transparent background" option of the gnome terminal is not
  working properly, the screen background turns black instead of
  transparent when a solid color is used as backgoround and if an image
  is being used it will only be visible when the bar is set to none,
  otherwise it will return to the last solid color selected. I'll attach
  scrrens on both cases.
