Making Main Menu icon bigger than panel bar

Postby The_Riskbreaker on Wed Jul 04, 2012 12:48 pm

Okay, I know a friend who did this in Fedora, and I believe Ubuntu as well. His Main Menu button is an orb that's larger than the actual bar, kinda like what *cough* win7 *cough* has. So I thought of trying to use an orb with a mint leaf in it for my menu. The first problem is that I can't seem to get the background to be transparent, so it saves as a circle and not a square. (I'm looking up online how to fix this). But more importantly, using this icon there causes the system to shrink it down to fit inside the bar. Is it possible to do like other OS's have done and make it go outside the bar's boundaries? Or is this impossible without a lot of hard coding?

Thanks,

Height 25 pixels, length variable candy to candy.

Place your own as superuser in /usr/lib/linuxmint/mintMenu then have your sweet choice by right cliking on menu button.

Slurp!
