Default transparency of gnome-terminal makes the application unusable
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:49 EST
Description of problem:
The default transparency of gnome-terminal (even though gnome-terminal is
configured to use a solid color background) renders the terminal unusable.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enable compiz's effects
2. Open gnome-terminal and another application
If the gnome-terminal is above the other application, then the gnome-terminal is
very difficult to see. This is especially true if the application has a lot of
white in its window.
The text displayed by gnome-terminal should always be legible.
I am using a PowerPC iBook. X identifies my video card as an "ATI Technologies
Inc M9+ 5C63 [Radeon Mobility 9200 (AGP)]."

This isn't too bad...

...but I can't see this.
Here gnome-terminal is not transparent at all by default.
This looks like a big-endian problem, there's number of places we could get this
wrong. Let me see if I can get a PPC machine and reproduce the problem - and it
is a bug, we'd never set the default transparency to "unusable" :)
Just tested this on a PPC laptop and I don't see these problems. If this is
still a problem with 0.3.6, please reopen this bug.
I just confirmed that this is fixed in Fedora 7.
