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.

Yep :)
When Arch moves the next release to stable I will care about the the necessary modifications as soon I've some spare time.

// edit

GNOME41 is finally in the stable repository. Will merge patches as soon as possible.

Will you be working on this for gnome 41 ?

hoschi commented on 2021-07-27 16:47

Please do not flag the package out-of-date because it isn't labeled as version 40.x.x. The upstream developers and the official packages use 3.40.x. I follow them accordingly.

As far as I know it is not possible. The terminal passes an GdkRGBA (which provides red, green, blue and alpha channels) to VTE. Maybe a migration to Gtk4 can change this situation in future, for example I've read something about GskBlurNode.

Would it be possible to blur the background?

I will hopefully take care of the upgrade to version 40 at the end of this week :)
