Description Vallimar 2011-04-07 20:43:29 EDT
Description of problem:
When enabling the transparent background option, transparency is blocked.
At first, I didn't think it worked at all, but in the overview, you can see it working, kinda. Also, works fine in fallback mode. Further testing, I noticed the very left edge was allowing transparency so I deduced that a large shadow or solid pixmap of the background colour is blocking the composited transparency effect while in gnome-shell. I'm unsure if this problem needs to be fixed in gnome-shell or gnome-terminal but it is there. The blockage changes when you set the background colour property.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
First noticed this in early alpha's, though it would be fixed by now.
But currently tested with gnome-terminal-3.0.0-1.fc15.x86_64.

How reproducible:
Always, under gnome-shell.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start gnome-terminal under gnome-shell.
2. Change settings to use transparent background.

Actual results:
Transparency effect isn't very transparent

Expected results:
More transparent transparency.

I see this as well but for me at least the transparency is OK when maximised.
Comment 2 Brian Cook 2011-04-21 22:31:18 EDT
Confirmed, this also happens in gnome-terminal.x86_64 2.32.0-1.fc14 running latest gnome-shell built from source.  Transparency works only when maximized.
