        Gnome 3.8 removed transparency and some other features from gnome-terminal. I was going to post a link to the bugzilla report - but it's getting an internal error / not working. Regardless, it's _even_ on wikipedia (lulz); http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GNOME_Terminal#Background

Otherwise, if compositing is disabled, the terminal will only be translucent with the user's desktop wallpaper. Translucent backgrounds are desired because the user can read text behind the terminal while entering commands into the command line. In Gnome Terminal 3.8 and onwards the option for a transparent background was removed.[8]
        ..But maybe you are using Ubuntu (or another distro patching it) and just aren't aware of the situation. [Ubuntu /possibly others are patching patching 'post-3.8 releases' of gnome-terminal [so am i]. (Ubuntu gnome-terminal-3.8.0 change log); https://launchpad.net/~gnome3-team/+...-archive-extra

        * note the 02_add_transparency_properties.patch under 'debian/patches'.

          Still under heavy development; no real release. You will likely have to build from git.
          Still a lot of performance issues.

          Which is realted to: https://mail.gnome.org/archives/clut.../msg00010.html

          Performance Breakthrough
          Many of the "improvements" made in the past months have slowed down Final Term, and two weeks ago, it at last became clear to me that development of terminal functionality could not continue in earnest without fixing the performance first.

          As a result, a number of changes were made to bring Final Term up to speed. It is now "only" 8-10 times slower than GNOME Terminal, which isn't anything to write home about but might be excused given that Final Term manages a much more complex model of the terminal output. In practice, the difference should be hardly noticeable.

          Once the remaining problem, absurdly high CPU usage when idle, is fixed (which you can help with by answering https://mail.gnome.org/archives/clut.../msg00010.html!), Final Term's performance will be ready for the initial release.

            Oh, I see. Yeah, I'm using Ubuntu and I'm still on Ubuntu 13.04 which doesn't have 3.8. Then, let me add my voice to you guys: no transparency in 2013!! WTH?!

              Just tried that. It looks really great, but the performance issues are not the worst part. Copy & paste doesn't even work. Waiting for a real release.

                It will be fixed for the final release.

                  It's nice that it's available but I'd rather Gnome adopt Final Term (http://finalterm.org/). It's nowhere near ready yet (doesn't handle output properly for even something like top, and uses too much memory/cpu) but it has such a good start. Its borrowed features from fish, hotwire, and probably others. That is what a nextgen terminal should look like.

                    They say, that the feature was removed in a restructuration process of the old code base, in order to raise the code quality. Some memory leaks could be fixed that way. Maybe it will return in the future. I'm wondering if this transparency was portable to wayland, anyway. But I couldn't care less, as I préfère a solid background - makes the output way better readable for me than anything transparent.

                      How can anyone use a transparent terminal?
                      If the clean up of the code base resulted in the rewrap functionality the loss of transparency was a good sacrifice.
