Hi! Panel help, please

Postby bill w » Tue Nov 20, 2007 9:02 pm

Hi just installed my copy of Mint, and I must say I am excited. Many thanks to the developers.
I have a question I hope someone can help me with. I like to use the transparent panel feature, however certain icons and the notification center, and the window list center draw their own non-transparent border or box...this kind of takes away from the transparency. I have migrated from Gutsy Gibbon and did not have this effect on the panel previously.
Could anyone tell me if there is a configuration file or something I can edit to solve this issue? I have included a screenshot. You can see what I mean...around "geyes" for example...or even the trash bin.
