If I turn off desktop effects, I lose transparency in the Gnome Terminal. Is there a way to turn desktop effects on, enabling transparency, but disabling all the other pretty effects? I’ve poked around in gconf-editor (after going through the Compiz dialog window) and had looked into compiz-1 but did not see anything obvious to change.
Aside from finding a lot of the effects distracting, they really bog down video. But I do find the transparency to be very useful when following tutorials. Wasn’t a problem before, but I’ve just moved myself to my netbook and have given up 12" of screen space.
I’m running OpenSUSE 11.4 x86_32 on an HPmini 1101 w/2GB RAM. Intel GMA950 is the graphics card.
