Question Transparent Panel


Is there any way to make the KDE "panel" transparent? i would like to make the bar (background) clear and leave my icons and every thing they way they are.. I have tryed a transparent .png file for a background, that didnt work.. and i have tryed some "karamba" themes but i can't get any of them to work as good as the normal KDE panel...... Thanks for any help!

Longinus there isn't such an option in properties or whatever. I tried what you tried SiZaint, and created a tranparent.png file, but as in your case, it didn't work.

There must be a way, but how?

Doesn't look like it's possible.
