From kde-apps/konsole-16.07.80, transparency doesn't work anymore.
In the settings it says that konsole has been started before the desktop effects were enabled and should be restarted. That has no effect.
Can you reproduce the described behaviour? https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=362857
(that would require first starting with a new session)
not really. Starting a new session with a newly added user, konsole is not transparent. This doesn't change at all, no matter what transparency settings I set or restart session and/or konsole. Desktop effect in general are working.
OK, this one sounds more like your problem: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=366368
Even better, it was fixed today with the following commit (also landing in 16.08 branch): https://quickgit.kde.org/?p=konsole.git&a=commit&h=a28902e9120798c67844864a11bbe3f1c2549b74
Indeed, that's my problem. Good to hear the issue is fixed already!
It still doesn't work here with konsole-16.08.0.
The commit got in after 16.08.0 tagging so you'll get it with the first bugfix pointrelease.
16.08.1 has arrived in kde overlay, transparency works for me now.
