Make taskbar transparent 16.04.2

Post by Alexander on Mon Nov 07, 2016 7:40 pm

Hallo everybodyl!
I use ChaletOS 16.04 during last month. Pleased with it as a full elephant. But i want to make my desktop more beautiful. How can I make the taskbar transparent? But so that the icons on it stay constantly visible. The answer in the forum, unfortunately, applies to version 14.04. I'm a newbie in Linux.

back now.

the new DocBar X is not good with transparency, you could switch to the older one with XFCE panel switcher:





choose ChaletOS default then hit the gears icon to apply.

Then right click panel, go to panel >> panel preferences. switch to the "apperance" tab and move the alpha slider to zero.

To make it more realistic, you should disable labels on your window buttons, to do so, go to the "items" tab on the panel preferences, click the "Window buttons" item, and then click the preferences button to the right. then uncheck "show button lables."

let me know if you need any more help.
