transparent menus [SOLVED]
« on: April 30, 2017, 05:38:28 pm »
Hello, I am finding menu (not whisker) such as when I click on a file menu, or browser menu the drop down is transparent and the information gets confused with the app that is in the background. I like the menus to be opaque so there is a clear differentiation. I have tried peppermint control center desktop effects to no avail.

Here is a screenshot of what I mean.

How the heck have you done that :-\ .. have you installed compiz ?

Is this theme specific ? .. what theme are you using ?

With all the other problems you seem to be having .. did you keep a home partition from another distro by any chance ?

Do you have all these problems if you log into a guest session ?

There has been minimal customization. I am using Peppermint-light-7 for theme.

I will add a guest account and see how the system behaves.

Hi Siawacsh,

Go into Peppermint Settings Panel and then into Peppermint Control Center and onto the Desktop Effects

Change Opacity of popup windows to Opague - its on a slider.
