First off, I realize that what I'm hoping to get is not the expected behavior.
On my older desktop, I have the following set up: Ubuntu 10.04. Xfce running (installed after the fact). I use the Xfce4-terminal, with transparency turned on. In this set up, as expected when a terminal window is over the desktop, it shows the desktop background image. However, if I drag the terminal window on top of a window, it continues to show the background as if the window wasn't there.
It's kind of weird that way, but I've gotten used to it.
Now, as I've set up my new desktop (11.10 w/ Xfce installed) transparency works the 'normal/correct' way, but I'd rather have it go back to leaving out windows.
So is it possible to get my new setup to do the old way?
