This is less invasive than gnome-terminal-fedora, because it doesn't include the notification-feature. Therefore you can stay with the regular vte3 and vte-common! To fullfill the makedepends you probably need to install the packages itstool, docbook-xsl, appstream-glib and yelp-tools, they can be removed when makepkg was executed successfully. Please ensure that you have installed the package group base-devel, which is a requirement to use AUR.

Top Workaround with devilspie, fore- and background are transparent.

Bottom Background transparency with gnome-terminal, better readability.

@Users of Manjaro

Manjaro usually needs some time to follow Archlinux after major upgrades of GNOME. Please check if Manjaro is providing the same version of GNOME, especially the dependencies vte3 and vte-common. If you want the package for an older release, you can pick the required files from the Git log.

Can you elaborate what you mean?

Anyone else experiencing downloading from ?

@abdulhakeem No problems here. But what you describe sounds like a problem with your system or a defect keyboard sending weird keycodes.

Anyone else getting weird bugs with this? ie the terminal loses focus all the time, or sometimes it gets stuck as if I'm holding down the enter key even though I'm not, or if I CTRL+C a running command, all of a sudden the terminal just won't show what I'm typing anymore yet will still respond to the command I'm entering, etc. not sure if it's a problem with my system or the package.

Hello! The distributions you named are derivatives of Archlinux, while reading your comments I'm presume they don't keep their packages in sync with Archlinux. Setmurphy18 quickly figured that out, that's why he/she edited the comment. You can fix you issue by using the older snapshot of the package, which I already posted. Just copy the full link, including the tar.gz at the end, you will end up with "3.32.0-1" instead of "3.32.1-1", that should fit well to your older packages. I keep the dependency on vte tight with upstream, maybe I'm a bit to strict.
