Does anyone know how to alter the gnome terminal so that it will accept images with transparent backgrounds? By default it seems to just mask them in white.

-Thanks

Open up Terminal..

(This is assuming you're in the 'Default' profile)

Edit > Profile Preferences > 'Default' > 'Background' tab > 'Background Image' and browse for suitable image file.

Edit > Profile Preferences > 'Default' > 'Background' tab > 'Transparent Background' and use the slider to set whatever transparency level you need!

Right, however the background opacity is a "layer over" the photo you use, at best. The hope was to have an image with a transparent background. Let me know if anyone knows something better, but, for me, this adjustment just changes how well you can see through the screen to the image.
