View Full Version : [ubuntu] problem with panel

June 2nd, 2009, 03:12 AM
my top panel has somehow managed to get itself transparent.
the title bar on top of windows has disappeared too:(:(:(
this has happened all of a sudden (i didn't even update my pc)

i thought that it had something to do with the theme i used (slickness-black)
so i removed the theme and all the other compiz effects that i used.
but the problem persists.

i have attached a screen-shot in case that helps...

Right click on the panel.

Select Properties. Select the background tab. Select a color and use the slider to adjust transparency.

If you want to use a background image, there are several places to get them.

Are you using emerald? If so then press Alt+F2 and run "emerald --replace", otherwise run "gtk-window-decorator --replace"
