Description Paweł Prażak 2011-11-12 02:58:50 EST
Description of problem:
It looks like this:

- Transparent Background
  Shade transparent or image background:
  None ----------------------------------------------------------- Max

1. What does 'shade transparent' actually mean? A shade of transparent? Doesn't sound right.
2. Setting is named 'Transparent Background' but setting it to 'None' causes the background to be 0%, fully transparent background and setting to 'Maximum' causes the bg to be at 100% transparency, so it is not transparent bg.
3. The whole tab is tricky because the slider bellow is active even if the radio button on transparent bg is not checked.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
GNOME 3.2 (but I think it is not a recent change)

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open the background settings of gnome-terminal
2. (see description above)
3.
  
Actual results:
Confusing description with reverse logic and 
I'll attach screanshot illustrating the problem

Expected results:
Clear and simple settings description with one obvious interpretation.
I'll attach a mock-up of expected results.

Where setting Transparency: None should do what is says, set bg transparency to None, so the bg is at 100%

I've just realized that maybe it would be better to fill this bug upstream.

Thanks, tracking this upstream is better, indeed
