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.

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.

Sorry, my distro is manjaro.

!!! Is there any way to warn the manjaro people about the lack of synchronism in the packages?

I get an error on Manjaro - ==> Error: Could not find all required packages: vte3>=0.56.1 (Wanted by: gnome-terminal-transparency)

I noticed a previous error in Manjaro by user sethmurphy18, but I am not sure what the error was, so I decided to post this anyway.

hoschi commented on 2019-04-10 08:31

@sethmurphy18: You can still download here[1] the previous release, I think that's the best approach as long as Manjaro doesn't update their mirrors.


sethmurphy18 commented on 2019-04-10 00:52

EDIT: nevermind...apparently Manjaro just messes with the mirrorlist and uses horribly outdated mirrors

When you're using Wayland, you will probably see a white rectangle behind the popover menu. I hope we can fix that soon.

hoschi commented on 2018-10-07 09:31

Well done surrealistic :)

surrealistic commented on 2018-10-07 09:24

I just fixed it, it was because my PKG_CONFIG_PATH variable was bad defined and it couldn't find the required files.

Yes, looks like GNOME is not installed, but I'm already using GNOME and it's installed with the GTK libraries. I thought that maybe it's because I was using the Plasma session in that moment and I tried again with the GNOME session with the same result so I disabled SDDM and I enabled GDM and I started the GNOME session again to try to install gnome-terminal-transparency but it returns the same.

The package requirements are not fulfilled. Looks like GNOME is not installed?
