Gnome Terminal no longer supports tranparency?? WTH

Can anyone figure a way around this or suggest a good terminal that does support transparency?

Tried Guake. Pretty nice, but I prefer a classic window style.

Try xfce4 terminal. It's in the repo.
sudo pacman -S xfce4-terminal

It's pretty decent, and you can add a background image as well.

Does anyone know how to make this the main terminal in openbox? If I press "super + t", the lxterminal shows.
Cheers.

Just change the keybind in your rc to launch a different app.

Gnome devs ask for your opinion, you can take 10 min for this survey.

Hi friend, Just do this in terminal:
Code: [Select]
yaourt -S gnome-terminal-transparencyIt will ask if you want to remove your actual terminal, just say YES.

You just replied to a three year old post by a forum member who hasn't been active for over two years.  >:D

Roxterm and xfce4-terminal are tied for best terminal overall. Termite for minimalism and mouse driven interface. Terminix for best terminal tiling and integrarion woth gnome.

I use termite with i3, and it's very convenient without mouse because has similar keybindings with vim, I find it reading ArchWiki.
