How can I have a monochrome panel background?


KDE - Jul 8 2010
answered
Question:I'm using stock Kubuntu 10.04, which I think uses the "Air" theme. It looks good, but I really dislike the rounded rectangles (squircles?) in the background of the Plasma panel at the bottom. I just want the nice translucent light-silvery blue.

There's System Settings > Advanced > Desktop Theme Details > Panel Background , but that doesn't let me set it to "None" or "Flat", my only choices are "Air Panel Background", "Oxygen Panel Background", or "Choose File...".

1. What's the *SIMPLEST* way to make the panel just a translucent flat color? I opened up /usr/share/kde4/apps/desktoptheme/default/widgets/panel-background.svgz in Inkscape and see all the squircles, but surely there's a simpler way. Note I am not interested in trying other themes, in general I have no interest in customizing and leave it to artists :)

2. Is it a known bug that I can't set the panel to no background or just a flat color in System Settings?

Thanks for all you do!

Answer:well as you found out plasma is skinned with svg pictures.. so in desktop theme details you only customize existing themes by mixing them with other themes or with custom svgs.. so no effects can't be set here.. with that said the easiest way is to look for the plasma theme that will suit your taste or get used to air's rectangles ;)

btw try http://kde-look.org/content/show.php/Eleonora?content=98341 that might answer your transparency wish

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
