I am using a theme that is supposed to make the dock and top bar transparent. The top bar is transparent however the dock is mostly back, there is a slight transparency, but not the same as the top bar. I have tried using dynamic panel transparency and manually setting the backgrounds opacity but it is not working. I have noticed sometimes it does go transparent then it flickers back to black. I am on Ubuntu 18.04. Any advice would be great. Thanks

Hello and Welcome !

What theme are you using ?

You can make the dock transparent with the dock to dash extension (not the crippled one bundled by Ubuntu, but the one you get from the website) So install gnome-tweak-tools (tool?) , remove the Ubuntu dash to dock (whatever they call it) Install dash to dock from the gnome extension website, then configure transparency from tweak tool. Even though I use unity in 18.04 I find the dynamic transparency feature in dock to dash pretty cool.
