    Gnome Terminal Background

    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.

    -thanks
