Bug Description

self.vte.set_background_saturation(ConfigManager.get_conf('transparency') / 100.0)
AttributeError: 'Terminal' object has no attribute 'set_background_saturation'

I've found a workaround:
comment the lines 152, 156 and 165 in the file "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/terra/VteObject.py"
after that Terra works well, but without background transparency or image

Yes that function has deprecated since vte version 0.34 i have to handle all these deprecated functions on next release but unfortunately there is no new release at the moment because i couldn't solve color palette bug yet :/ it's a major bug and i am waiting for a upstream updates on vte and gobject-introspection.

But while waiting i'll be working on these deprecated functions.

affected me as well
