    There are Gedit themes available , but not transparent. I can suggest one that matches your current terminal color a little better.http://gnome-look.org/content/show.p...content=122775

    Please do not create separate threads for the same issue. I have merged the two threads and removed the [SOLVED] heading.

    Re: transparency in gedit!

    so first you need to have the compiz settings manager installed:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager
    once it is installed, you need to start the manager.
    in the terminal window type
    Code:
    ccsm --category=Accessibility
    Check the box next to Opacity, Brightness and Saturation


    Now you have some flexibility here. You can set up transparency for any and all windows. The way I have it set up is by default nothing is transparent, but while holding alt I can scroll with my mouse to increase or decrease any windows transparency. But if you just want to force gedit to be transparent, i'll also show you how to do that.

    To make gedit transparent:
    After making sure the box is checked, click on the icon next to the checkbox to open up the configuration settings.
    • Under the Opacity tab click on New. a new window opens.
    • Click the + and another window opens.
    • type or copy/paste:
      Code:
      name=gedit
      and modify "window values" to be the level of opacity.


    as you see here, I have simply added button assignments for my mouse so that I can use my scroll wheel while holding alt so that i may make any window i'm focused on transparent to a level of my liking at any given moment. Personally I think this is the better option, but hey, to each his/her own, right?
