[Gimp-user] transparent background becomes black

i wasted all day trying everything, and at least 10 tutorials, to fix
this error. transparent background saved in jpg or png becomes black.
i would really appreciate any help

You have your image in Gimp. Transparency is denoted (usually) by a chequer
board pattern. Export to a png file to keep the transparency. The default export
values are OK.

Then I suspect it is the viewer you are using to view the png.

Attached example, Firefox browser shows a white-ish background, then a couple of
linux viewers, one shows a black background, the other the chequer pattern. All
the same image.
