    Launcher wont stay the same

    I've downloaded a program called MyUnity for Ubuntu and I configure it so that my launcher's color is clear(although I do this by selecting the color Black), but every time I boot Ubuntu, the launcher has changed to some purplish color. I've attached two pictures to show what I want and what I don't want.

    How can I keep it one way so that it will not change after a reboot?

    What version of Ubuntu and did you install MyUnity from the software center ? If you would like a picture of your desktop select the print screen key or open the screen shot tool, this is easier than with a camera and more detailed.

    Hello ImTroyMiller,

    I think iv'e found the the launcher will change color to match the desktop color.... Any chance your desktop image is purple? It appears to be in the screenshots you uploaded.

    My launcher changes to match whatever background color my desktop is... Maybe yours is doing the same. I havent messed with "MyUnity" however so i cant help with configuring that part. Hope this helps some.

    All the best

    I have Ubuntu 12.04 and I installed MyUnity from the software center.

    Most of background is black.

    I've noticed, that if I change the launcher color option in MyUnity to green and then back, after rebooting, it'll be gree(or what ever color I had previously changed it from). I need it to stay transparent.

    Re: Launcher wont stay the same

    Is there a setting for matching the wallpaper or custom color? I can't install the application because it doesn't work on 13.04. Unity Tweak which I am using doesn't work on 12.04. I remember having a similar problem with a black launcher and I removed the MyUnity folder from home hidden folders (CTRL +H) and reinstalled the application. I don't remember the folder location though and it maybe inside the.config folder.

    Yes, there is a setting for transparency, and I have it set to the maximum.

    In the photos I've attached...

    1. This is my desktop when I first boot Ubuntu.

    2. This is MyUnity launched.

    3. This is after clicking on the "Color" from the previous screen.

    4. This is after making a change in the "Color name" textfield("#000001" is changed to "#000002").

    5. This is what happens after I have clicked the OK box. The launcher is now transparent.

    How can I permanently make the launcher transparent?

    Re: Launcher wont stay the same

    Thanks for the pictures , I have not seen MyUnity since 12.04. This may be a bug in the MyUnity application which is 3rd party . I solved a color problem as I wrote in the previous post. You can post a question or report a bug at the link.

    It must just be a bug in MyUnity.
