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.

It's already in the stable now.

Hi! I will try to care about the upgrade on 3.22 next week, if it is in stable then (currently in test).

Hi hoschi,

I think it's just for me, I do have perl-xml-parser installed and it still fails. It had something similar according to this post

Solved it now, thanks :)

Ouch. Are you able to compile the regular gnome-terminal?
makepkg should tell you, that intltool is a build-time-dependency, which requires perl-xml-parser.

// edit
I double checked the build on another machine. It run's fine. Does anybody else have this issue?

decryptedepsilon commented on 2016-08-09 13:39

checking for XML::Parser... configure: error: XML::Parser perl module is required for intltool
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().
:: failed to build gnome-terminal-transparency package(s)

It fails for me here. Anyone getting this on 3.20.2-2??

hoschi commented on 2016-08-09 12:20

I have added the patches dnd-crash and palette-color, as done for the regular package by Archlinux.

This is how the gnome-terminal should be! :) Thank you <3

Thank you SunRed! You're right, I removed the tag.

Greetings back :)

Great package for those that don't need the notification feature build into gnome-terminal-fedora.
FYI gnome-terminal 3.20 now includes a dark theme switch upstream, so the "dark-theme" tag/keyword is unnecessary. Also you don't set the dark theme as default.

Greetings from gnome-terminal-fedora.
