Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-terminal

This patch in ubuntu's gnome-terminal package http://patches.ubuntu.com/g/gnome-terminal/extracted/20_add_alt_screen_toggle_ui.patch adds a gconf pref, but the pref name is not namespaced in any way to ubuntu. Please add namespacing (e.g. name it ubuntu_alternate_screen_scroll) as to not constrain upstream should it accept this patch in a modified form with a different meaning to the pref.

2017 update:

- there's no gconf
- there's no alternate_screel_scroll preference added by ubuntu patches
- but there are some new transparency-related preferences added to the gsettings schema

The current patch at https://patches.ubuntu.com/g/gnome-terminal/gnome-terminal_3.24.2-0ubuntu4.patch adds these preferences

- use-transparent-background
- use-theme-transparency
- background-transparency-percent

However I believe the same transparency patch is also shipped by Debian and Fedora, so an ubuntu prefix would not be appropriate.

Perhaps this bug ought to be closed?
