    Making the terminal transparent


    I've seen screenshots where peoples terminals and menus are transparent. I know this is a hack and I was wondering how I would go about doing something like that. I'm running mandrake 9.1/KDE if that matters. Thanks...

    I don't know about terminals, but in KDE, you can go to your control center and configure the menus to be transparent or anything you want them to be.

    Well I got it going in the Konsole with the settings schema deal, but can I do it in any of the other terminals? Also how do I get Konsole to save my settings?

    In Konsole there is an option to save your terminal settings. I can't be 100% sure (no Konsole here, only Eterm), but I believe that it is under the same "parent menu" as the themes.
