(Pop! OS 22.04) Theme question

Hi all, i followed this and this to change the panel and dock so it will be transparent instead of being black, but so far i have no luck getting it done manually. Anyone has done this and if so...how ?

My desktop currently looks like this but i want the panel and dock getting changed. I am aware of the gnome tweak tool, but i want to do this by hand so i am knowing what i am doing/changing.

Reddit suggested:

background-color: transparent;

Instead, try

background-color: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.0);

Thanks for your reply, i will try as you suggested.

Here is the gnome-shell.css (dark theme). I changed it and it did not work.

really cannot get past all the ads to download it...
Apparently, My Windows computer has Security alerts that they can fix.

Can you use Mega.io?

Ugh…file has been send :sweat_smile:


#panel, .panel {
    background-color: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.0);

replace that property in in the gnome-shell.css rather than adding it, otherwise you will end up with both backgrounds in the file.
Do not replace the property in every instance of #panel, only where the panel class is isolated as outlined:
#panel {
That is Just the panel...
But this:
#panel .panel-button { is not the panel, but the button that goes on the panel.
#panel .panel-app-indicator {
is the indicator that goes on the panel.


Thanks, will retry it again later today.
