if you want to have a transparent panel just like mac, you need to search for docker

If you want to force gnome terminal transparent, you can set the terminal windows transparent 1st then start the beryl.

If you want to use beryl, try to 'yum install berylxx xxx xxx' I don't know how to install in fedora since I leave it quite long time. Check with google.

However, before your beryl working well, you must make sure your display driver working well too (nvidia,ati,intel)

to make the terminal transparent open up a terminal go to edit > current profile and then go to effects
to make the gnome-panel transparent right click on it go to properties > background image and enable solid color and go to transperancy
