Description Paul F. Johnson 2004-08-31 23:44:25 UTC
Description of problem:
If I set the transparency of the terminal window to (say) 45%, I can
see the background image, but nothing else which is on the desktop
(such as icons or other open windows)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Make the terminal window 45% transparent
2. Move over any open windows
Actual results:
The open windows (such as if I open a terminal window over this page
while editting it), are not viewable, but the background behind
everything else is.

Expected results:
You should only be able to see what is directly behind the open
terminal window. Looks like the window stacking is not correct

Unfortunately, X currently doesn't provide a mechanism for doing what
you want.  Gnome-terminal merely provides a pseudo-transparency (just
shows the desktop background).  In the future when X Composite support
becomes mature this should be possible, but that is going to be a while.
