I'm using M-x load-theme to load color-theme-solorized from the marmalade repository and it works and gets the color correct. The problem I'm having is that if I run emacs -nw in gnome-terminal that has transparency, the transparency gets lost.
Is there any way to have this color theme and keep terminal transparency?
I'd also like to point out that I have set export TERM=xterm-256color in my .bashrc

I had the same problem, a workaround for this is to apply following changes to solarized-definitions.el:

Find this Code: (base03 (find-color 'base03))

Replace it with: (base03 ())

Make sure to recompile it, if you don't the "old" binary version in solarized-definitions.elc is used, regardless of your changes in solarized-definitions.el
