Terminal background image problem when compositing is active

Postby Gabbo2084 » Sun Oct 20, 2013 7:39 am

Hello everyone,
I'm experiencing a problem with the terminal. If I set a background image and activate compositing, the image gets semi-transparent and the colors kinda look more saturated. I'll upload two pictures showing how it should be (without compositing) and how it is (with compositing).

Here are my specs:
-AMD Phenom II X2 550
-Sapphire Radeon HD4650
-Linux Mint 13 XFCE 64bit
-Proprietary AMD drivers installed with jockey

I have also tried the xfce-terminal instead of the standard gnome one, but I get the same problem. I even trie the MATE version of Linux Mint but same probles as well.
Does anyone know anything about this?

Thank you very much for any help you can provide

* Open terminal and right click somewhere in the window.
* Choose "Preferences", then click "Appearance" tab.
* Under "Background" category, I'll assume you already chose "Background Image" and selected the file.
* If you look down a little further you'll see "Transparency" with a slider next to it. Set that to zero. It looks like the transparency is set to something else from the pictures you attached.

I have compositing set and this works fine for me for terminal background image.
