Sorry guys, forgot to mention that i played around with the color-chooser as well :-)

im new to the unix world (after 7 years of .NET developement and still doing this for work) id like to learn something new, and more important different.. :-) btw: is there any "plan" to make the panel really transparent... not that pseudo transparent (where the windows behind the panel vanish)?

If you want really transparent panel try installing Docky in panel mode or DockbarX and also maybe enable the Blur Plugin in Compiz.

You might need to install compizconfig-settings-manager to play with the blur effect.

Docky FTW

I used to have compiz settings with a transparent panel but i forgot about it. I'll have a look at the settings.

This works great on the themes that have transparent backgrounds for the window list items or the application menu, but some themes such as the default in Lucid override the colour

Themes which work so far include Dust Sand and Unified. I'm sure we could hack any gtk theme to remove the relevant lines about the panels.

Also, you might want to install this to set the text colour to white in the panel:

sudo apt-get install gnome-color-chooser


Set the forground colour to white on the panel tab then click apply

Those themes aren't image based so it's pretty hard to extract the right part to change in a image based theme. I just got Gnome Colour Chooser from your code, how do you change it so it's transparent with that?

Well it's just a guess, but I think there are some applets that don't get transparent, but if you mean the menu, it's dockbarx with some nice theme I found here... or on deviantart... shinybar or something like that.

btw. Picard. Kirks a bitch :-)

I did some messed up stuff to get it to work. First i took a look at the gtk files and took out a few lines i thought would take away the bg, then i used colour chooser and changed the Image BG for the panel but selected none and all the applets have gone the same transparency as the rest of it. Only way i could do it in a pixmap theme, I'll figure out which lines i took out.

And yeah, Picard is way better.

The colour chooser was just to set the text colour to white, the transparency depends on the theme

Thanks for that, all i needed was (class=Gnome-panel) and i knew how to do the rest. That does kinda make all the stuff i've done to my themes useless though :P
