Install either Ubuntu Tweak or Unity Tweak and you will find an option for making the top bar translucent...

unity-tweak-tool is not available for Precise. Use something else instead, like Ubuntu Tweak.

With 12.04 we install Compiz Configuration Settings Manager (CCSM) and load it and open the Ubuntu Unity Plugin and on the General tab we see the label Panel Opacity. Lower the setting to 0.0000 or 0.0001 and that should give you a transparent top panel.

You can also reduce the opacity of the Launcher background by going to the Launcher tab (it may be called Experimental in 12.04) and lowering the Launcher Opacity from there.

With 13.04 it is a little trickiery because there is a limit to how low the top panel transparency will go and this is because the top panel is connected to the Dash. So, you will not get it completely transparent unless we use CCSM to lower the Dash background colour to 2. You do this under the General tab. Click on panel labelled Background Color and Pick a Color dialog will appear and you will see an Opacity slider.

Regards.

Are you really running Kubuntu anyway?

Then I'd go looking in system settings and Desktop Effects.
