Bug Description

Hi. I love Terra. It's been my mainstay terminal since I discovered it last year.

Since I added the Gnome repository to my Ubuntu 13.10 system, though, terra has failed to launch. The error output is this:

** (terra:21784): WARNING **: Can't load fallback CSS resource: Failed to
import: The resource at '/org/gnome/adwaita/gtk-fallback.css' does not exist

** (terra:21784): WARNING **: Can't load fallback CSS resource: Failed to i

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

From the python traceback it seems like maybe the set_background_saturation method is the culprit.

I'm using libgtk version 3.10.6-0ubuntu2~saucy1. I believe the "official" libgtk version for Ubuntu 13.10 was 3.8.6. It *seems* like this error appeared for me at the same time that I upgraded gtk, though this could be a coincidence.

I hope you're able to fix this soon. I'm missing Terra already and it's only been 3 days. Thanks.
