    Is it possible to Transparent Gnome Menu's

    Hello,
    I have my Gnome panel with transparency in ubuntu. so it looks like something below, which merges nicely with my wallpaper and the white texts stands out nicely. However I would like to the make the gnome menus (that fall underneath Applications, Places and System) to have the same effect, transparent background with white text.

    Is there a way to give menus the same transparency as the panel?

    It's not possible for you to make transparent gnome menu. You can make the panel transparent, however by right clicking it Properties > Background. KDE however has menu transparency, but this is a lot different from gnome.

    If you run Compiz you can easily turn your gnome menuís transparent. This is pretty neat if you already have some kind of transparent emerald theme running and want your whole desktop to match.

    Firstly, make sure you have the ĎCompiz Configuration Settings Managerí installed (CCSM). You can easily find this in synaptic if you donít.

    1. Open CCSM
    2. Go to Accessibility
    3. Go to Tab - Opacity Settings

    Enter the settings as follows: -
    • dock 67
    • Menu 90
    • DropdownMenu 92
    • popupmenu 93
