RGBA in GNOME Shell


There are a few screenshots that I took of my GNOME Shell that I was able to hack to include RGBA attached to this thread.

Here's how I was able to do it:

I edited /usr/share/gnome-shell/theme/gnome-shell.css (with gedit). In the "#panel" block, located in lines 73-79, I added, before the closing curly brace,

Code:
background-color: rgba (50, 100, 50, 100);
After this, I restarted GS, and this is what I got:

Attachment 2934

Next, I edited (with gedit) the block where the calendar popup was (near the very end of the file). In the code, it is "#calendarPopup". Just before the closing curly brace, I put:

Code:
background-color: rgba (0, 0, 0, 0.9);
And this was my final result:

Attachment 2933

Notice in this second screenshot, the calendar popup is also transparent, instead of black.

Here is what a RGBA-hacked GS looks like with a window open:

Attachment 2935

Enjoy!

Hi Kenny,

I'd like to see these images, but am not able to view the attachments; could you check that they work for you, and/or if necessary, re-upload them or re-attach them to the post? If you have troubles getting them to attach properly, feel free to hit the REPORT button and ask for a moderator or site admin to look into it.

Thanks!

Sasha

I had deleted those attachments to save my attachment quota.

Maybe use something like ImageShack? Make an account, upload images to it, and use [img] tags to embed the image.
