KDE 4.0.5 transparency


I have Fedora Core 9 and KDE 4.0.5 on my computer.
I tried to change colour scheme of Konsole (transparent scheme):

Settings -> Edit Current Profile... -> Appearance

When I select Edit... I see the text:

The background transparency setting will
not be used because your desktop does
not appear to support transparent

What does it mean?
How can I make my Konsole transparent scheme?

It sounds as though you are using the xorg graphics card drivers rather than the proprietary ones. If you have an Nvidia or an Ati card you need to get the drivers from their website.
