Description of problem:
The discussion on the Limbo-list got me to try out transparency, but now I want
to turn it off and I can't.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Gnome terminal
2. Edit -> Current Profile, Effects tab
3. Click on Transparent background
4. Now try to click it off.
Actual Results: The transparent background stays on.
Expected Results: I expected to be able to turn off the transparent background.
Additional info: I haven't tried this as the superuser.
It's a trap! ;-)
Just so we're all on the same page here, you attempted to disable transparency
by selecting "None (use solid color)" on the effects tab in the profile editor?
(This confuses me because I can disable transparency without incident here,
which would lead to WORKSFORME.)
It is the "transparent background" button that I cannot turn off. What
actually happened is that I edited the profile and turned on the transparent
background. Then I closed the edit profile window and saw the black characters
against the dark (transparent) background and decided to turn the transparent
background off. So I opened edit -> Current Profile and tried to turn off the
transparent background; the button wouldn't turn off and the ---.xml
configuration file still contained "transparent".
I will verify this with a different user account, but I don't have my Null
computer with me today. What is the WORKSFORME version number?
Oops, I see what you are saying. I was trying to use the transparent
background as a checkbox - click on, click off. Duh. As the little old lady
on Saturday Night Live used to say, "Nevermind."
