Install xcompmgr and transset.

Add the following section into the end of your xorg.conf file:

Section "Extensions"
Option "Composite" "Enable"
Option "RENDER" "true"
Option "DAMAGE" "true"
EndSection

Then add xcompmgr (with options - http://blogs.linux.ie/frankly/2004/09/29/xcompmgr-options/) into your list of Gnome startup programs (gnome-session-properties) and set it to order 0 (allowing it to start up before any other program). The translucency in the screenshot is achieved by using the command transset, followed by the amount of translucency one wants (eg, 0.5 = 50% opaque). Just running transset sets a window to 75% opaque.

This program is only really recommended for high-end computers with 3D accelerated graphics cards.
