    Question 12.10 - Transparency to Top Panel

    Ubuntu Tweak, not an option for Opacity of the Top Panel. The Expermintal does not alter Opacity either.

    MyUnity 3.0, no support for 12.10 as of today, as the switch to DConf-Editor

    DConf-editor, can change active/inactive window Opacity, but not Top Panel.

    I guess you know where I am going with this.

    Here's what I have found so far:

    Terminal: (Displays 0.0-1.0 for Current Opacity)
    gsettings get org.compiz.unityshell:/org/compiz/profiles/unity/plugins/unityshell/ panel-opacity
    Terminal: (Sets Opacity, Replace X with a number from 0.0000 - 1.0000)
    gsettings set org.compiz.unityshell:/org/compiz/profiles/unity/plugins/unityshell/ panel-opacity 0.3670
    Now the problem. In 12.04 and less using MyUnity, when a window is maximized, the Opacity reverts back to 1.0, and is no maximized windows, it stayed at your custom setting.

    In 12.10, the Opacity level set, stays persistant. Any thoughts? Any word on MyUnity for 12.10?

    Re: 12.10 - Transparency to Top Panel

    I guess a couple of things -
    In 12.10 panel opacity is slightly broken & doesn't scale as well as previously. Ex. 0.0100 should look transparent but isn't any different than 0.2800 or so.

    As far as what I think your question is -
    The default is not to go to 1.0 on a maxed window - to set
    gsettings set org.compiz.unityshell:/org/compiz/profiles/unity/plugins/unityshell/ panel-opacity-maximized-toggle true
    After setting you'd then see the key in dconf-editor which only shows many while they're not at default settings

    As an alternative to myunity, try unsettings.
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:diesch/testing
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install unsettings
