    Question Is there any way to turn off the adaptive transparency of the top bar?

    I am on Ubuntu 17.10. I don't use the Ubuntu Dock (I use Dash to Dock) due to it not being too compatible with my GTK Themes. Now, whenever I use Dash to Dock, my desktop looks weird because the top bar goes fully transparent but Dash to Dock doesn't. Is there any way that I can turn off the Adaptive Transparency? If so, how? If there isn't then I think there should be in the next version of Ubuntu.

    See if you can override with this extension.
    dynamic-panel-transparency
    Allows you to set a custom opacity for max and unmaxed windows.

    I had actually tried that before I posted this thread and it didn't work. I think that Ubuntu just ignores the extensions that try to change the transparency.

    Doesn't seem to be the case in 18.04, see screeen
    (- fresh install, added dock to dash & the dynamic trans extension, set max & min opacity to highest values..

    May have to logout to see effects.
    In the 17.10 Ubuntu session I get a panel shadow gradient with maximized windows.
    Using the 17.10 Gnome session with dash-to-dock and dynamic-panel-transparency I don't get the panel shadow gradient.
    If you're not using the ubuntu-dock shouldn't be a problem using the Gnome session.

    Edit: Seems to work in any session if I enable "Remove excess panel styling" in the dynamic-panel-transparency extension.

    The Ubuntu dock has 3 transparency modes:

    FIXED: constant transparency
    ADAPTIVE: lock state with the top panel
    DYNAMIC: dock takes the opaque style only when windows are close to it

    You can set with for example:

    Code:
    gsettings set org.gnome.shell.extensions.dash-to-dock transparency-mode 'FIXED'
    or use dconf.

    Oops, must read more carefully . But that setting is also in Dash to Dock I think:
