I am trying to figure out how to make my terminal emulator dynamically transparent ( see through to the action below that window - Browser, video et cettera and not just the default wallpaper) . I figured out how to make transparent but not "dynamic". I have seen people mentioned you need to enable compositing but I am unsure how to do that in Gnome. I recall from a prior use of XFCE this was an option in that WM but I can't find in Gnome or compiz (if needed)
I am running Gnome on Debian Squeeze and have installed compiz.
Any direction would be appreciated. I find reading web tutorials through the terminal to be very helpful so I can practice the command line or even practice commands while watching a good video
