I've looked EVERYWHERE (almost) for how to make the panel transparent... I keep finding things about a file named "transparent" (which doesnt exist on my system)... here is a link: http://www.xfce.org/documentation/4....l-transparency
. This confuses me though - where is <basedir> so I know where to add this file? And why doesnt my panel "by default" use the transparency which they speak of (unless I use Compiz/Beryl). This left with lots of questions, yet no leg to stand on...
Now I have a leg to stand on again. I'll give this patch a shot tonight to see if it works. I'll be back either with a success story or asking for more information.
