I have post a tutorial using Compiz to set a transparent terminal window stick on Ubuntu wallpaper, but I failed setting it up in Ubuntu 12.04 Unity. So here’s an alternative for some want a transparent terminal on Ubuntu 12.04 wallpaper using tilda.
Tilda is a highly customizable Linux terminal window.
I am using Xubuntu 12.04 and I would like to get the default terminal to be transparent of sorts. Everytime I change the preferences of the terminal and make it transparent it shows all the way thru to the desktop instead of the window it's directly above. I would like it like this picture.
