I miss the old days, where my terminal looked like a pane of frosted glass. Is there any way to get this back?
1) https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=198175 - no luck on KDE
2) https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=698544 - Gnome just doesn't seem to care
3) http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2145278 - Evidently, I'm out of luck with Unity as well
So, none of the three major desktop environments support the notion of a terminal/console with a frosted glass / blurred opacity background.
Ok, so are there custom consoles out there that sport this feature? I realize it's not an important feature, but some vanity on your desktop env is not a terrible thing, and this is the one thing I miss the most. Any ideas?
