terminator and real transparency

Terminator is a great terminal, but running compiz it might be a bit confusing getting real transparency (if you’re one of those). With reference to the terminator man page (man 5 terminator_config), edit ~/.config/terminator/config and add these lines:

enable_real_transparency = true
background_darkness = 0.7
background_type = transparent

Note: use background_darkness to adjust the level of transparency 🙂
