    Well, Konsole is for KDE (uses the KDE daemons and libraries), and Gnome Terminal is for GNOME. In all else, it's mainly just a matter of look and feel and in some cases some small changes in functionality. xterm is probably the graphically most lightweight of them all. It's the one I use.

    That is a bit problematic. I know there is one, but I can't say that I really know how it works, though. It probably says in the manpage, though.

    You serious with me?! (Apperently; it seems to work...)
    I would never have believed that newer GTK+ applications and the like would support that scheme. Thank you very much!

    I'd still like to know how to make a terminal semi-transparent without having to use Konsole. I read the man pages on a couple of them but I coudn't get anything from those...

    What terminal is it that you're trying to do semi-transparent?

    Well any terminal that can support it, doesn't matter to me. I tried Eterm but the transparency is only supported by WindowMaker and Enlightenment.
