terminal transparency
i can't seem to find how to make this work, it seems like no matter what terminal i use(d/led terminator aside from stock terminal) i can't get the window to be transparent, i changed my wallpaper and i still get the default debian wallpaper as my terminal background even though i am specifically telling it to use transparency, if i go into desktop settings and there is nothing in there that indicates the stock wallpaper is being used...

any help would be appreciated, using xfce and debian.

Could tell us more information? I mean, what version of xfce are you using? Because if you are using xfce4, I think the pseudo-transparency was removed in 4.8 since.

You can read something more about this in this link

Ternminator > Profiles tab > Background > Transparent background"
