No transparency in the embedded Dolphin terminal.

Hi,

I always run Dolphin with an embedded terminal on the bottom. The Konsole profile used is set to 20% transparency but the terminal in Dolphin is not transparent at all while Konsole is. Am I missing something, or is this simply a bug?

The Konsole part is embedded to the Dolphin (on the top of the Dolphin). You could get the Konsole transparency with the Dolphin by setting the Dolphin transparency. At this with the Kvantumn widget style & Rough Glass theme:

Thanks! I have set transparency for active Konsole profile and it works in Konsole but not in Dolphin which uses the same profile for the embedded terminal. I can see that transparency is set, but the console at the bottom of Dolphin isn't. See screenshot where Konsole is transparent while the embedded terminal in Dolphin isn't

What I'm trying to say / By my knowledge:

The Konsole part is on the top of the Dolphin background.

You could 'see' through the Konsole part and the Dolphin if both are using transparency.

The widget (Dolphin) transparency can be achieved by using a widget style with transparency (KDE System Settings > Application Style > Widget Style).

At here, tested with the Kvantum...

Seems to work:

Thanks! That explains it. I simply hit the keyboard shortcut for the terminal in Dolphin so I thought it was just embedded. I will play around with it to see what I can do.

you can get this same effect by right clicking Dolphins title bar >more actions>Special Applications Settings>Appearance & Fixes tab>active opacity .........but again,,,,this effects the hole Dolphin window , not just the Konsole part
