I change my mind. I took a chance and d-u already. So far, no problems.

It's too bad I never used cclive to fully understand its purpose. Oh well!

I am using AntiX 13.2 upgraded to Sid and managed to do a dist-upgrade without apps getting removed and only with libs being replaced with v5 versions. One thing I noticed is now Roxterm no longer is transparent and the transparency setting is no longer honored. The desktop I am using is Fluxbox. Any ideas how to fix it?

tranparency:
gnome devs (who maintain the livbte library) grew tired of wrestling with making transparency work across all soft/hardware permutations.

https://packages.debian.org
search for libvte and read the changelog. The version with a "9" in it drops transparency support. That version is now present in both sid and testing, IIRC.

See whether you can (without breakage) force a libvte package downgrade.
The only peeps I know who are working on continuing to support tranparency in libvte are the LinuxDeepin devs.
If you could get a hold of their .deb (or build from their source) I'm guessing you'd regain transparency (if you were lucky to have it previously, under libvte v1.18).
edit:
Oops, no. I just revisited (github) and noted that Deepin has only forked python-vte, not libvte.

From reviewing the changelog details, by pinning the older libvte we're not missing anything noteworthy, IMO.


edit:
ubuntu has patched libvte to restore transparency.
If you're interested in DIY patching and (re)building libvte, See message #32 here

BTW:
synaptic v0.82.5 is buggy for me.
The app locks up if you open the "preferences}}repositories" dialog window, necessitating sudo killall synaptic
