I have set up my Raspberry Pi 3, but the terminal has a completely transparent background. This means I can see the desktop which is very distracting.
I've been trying setterm --background black but nothing happens.
setterm --background black
Any idea how to resolve this?
In the options tabs select Edit -> Preferences -> "Style" tab -> background -> use the "Opacity" slider -> "OK" -> and OK again.
@Gabboxl is right but you need to make sure you can hit the ok buttons. I finally managed to do this via an ssh connection
ssh pidevice lxterminal&
