Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 906745
gnome-terminal opacity always resets to zero
Last modified: 2013-02-17 19:44:37 EST
Description of problem:
gnome-terminal background transparency is reset to zero after the last window is closed (which means all terminals are completely transparent at login)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. choose a profile, set its background to transparent and set transparency to a value between 0 and 100%
2. all other terminals with the same profile are affected immediately
3. close all terminals with the same profile
4. open another terminal with the same profile as before
new terminal is completely transparent (opacity is reset to zero)
transparency settings should be persistent
This has already been filed on Jun 2012 as bug 832716 but it might go unnoticed for F18 since it was filed for F17, thought I should open a new issue for F18.
I filed this bug upstream as well [https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=692753] and the response was: "Looks like a gconf bug to me; there's no code writing to the opacity gconf key when creating a new terminal."
This is not a gnome-terminal bug, it's probably caused by gnome-settings-daemon. Just filed bug 912161 to track this. Closing as NOTABUG.
