View Full Version : [lubuntu] True lxpanel transparency with compton?

October 13th, 2014, 02:33 PM
By default lxpanel uses fake transparency, so that you can see the wallpaper on the desktop behind the panel instead of whatever window is underneath. I want to get true transparency to show the window as well.
The closest I came was putting

opacity-rule = [
"0:window_type = 'dock' && class_g = 'lxpanel'"

into my compton config file, but this makes the *entire* panel transparent, including the icons and clock.

Is there a way to set the transparency of the panel without losing the icons as well?

Bumping this (selfishly).
