Bug Description

An option to have transparency on all the time (rather than only when no pointer is over onboard) would be great, especially for tablets where screen real estate is in high demand. The ability to see what you are typing underneath the keyboard would be great. Even experienced typists could perhaps have very-low or complete transparency once they get used to onboard's layout.

Click new. Type "title=onboard." Set your opacity.

Done.

I can confirm that this bug was fixed in the oneiric-proposed version.

TEST CASE:
1. Click the button in the bottom right of onboard
2. Click the wrench button to start Onboard Preferences.
3. Switch to the Window tab and set your desire Transparency percentage. There is a separate dial for transparency when inative.
