I'm trying to customize my panel on the top now with the cairo dock at the bottom. id like to change the panel on top
or is the way to change the opacity on the menu button? i had the top panel red with the opacity down and i liked it
but it looked off with the menu button solid grey.

You can't change its colour without editing the actual image file
/usr/share/peppermint/images/menu-button.png
or selecting another image by right-clicking the menu button and selecting "Menu Settings"

Hmm .. that last one looked better when not on a light grey background  ???

Can go anywhere you like, as long as "Menu Settings" points at it.

The original image is in the folder
/usr/share/peppermint/images

so if you run:
Code: [Select]
pcmanfm /usr/share/peppermint/imagesa file manager window will open in the right place

IIRC it's called menu-button.png (or similar)
