Nice. Simple, flat, modern. Which icon set do you use with it?

Another solution for orage panel clock background color. especially if you otherwise like the default style.

It appears that the problem with elementary-VL for the orage panel clock is caused by the usr/share/themes/elementary-VL/gtk2.0/apps/xfce-panel.rc

Adding a # in front of the line as shown below will change the panel color to a flat grey but allows then the orage panel clock background color to be changed in the clock properties

The top few lines of the elementary-VL xfce-panel.rc are as follows

Code: [Select]
style "elementary-panel"
{
xthickness = 1
ythickness = 0

# bg_pixmap[NORMAL] = "Apps/xfce-panel/panel-dark.png" # Disable for normal panel backgrounds.

This change would only be required by those who would like to use the orage panel clock and desire to change the background color of the clock, while keeping the default style.

Looking forward to the new Vector linux 7.2 release

Here is a shot of the current rc on my laptop, working great

I downloaded five round icons to go with the Vector button in this simple custom layout. open apps appear at the bottom of the screen and panels intelligently auto  hide. I really like it but beauty is in the eye of you know who.

Yes I agree that orage transparency is an upstream issue and applies to any distro using xfce.

However selecting a background color for the orage panel clock appears to be related to the default theme in vector linux named elementary-VL and is not associated with the transparency bug

Although I would not consider it reason to postpone a final release, as one can simply select any other available style, it should be confirmed and addressed in the next release.

I have not found a reason for this but have switched style from elementry-VL to several other onboard styles and the default is the only one that prohibits selecting a background color in orage panel clock properties.

I checked a few other xfce distros and although the transparent issue exists there was no issue changing background color.

on another note: there is a pidgin icon on the upper panel but the app appears to have been removed

Fixed.

The orage bug is confirmed: https://bugzilla.xfce.org/show_bug.cgi?id=11915

Devs will watch upstream to see if a fix is forthcoming.

One solution is to go to settings/appearance/style and select something other than the default elementary-VL style

this allows one to change the orage panel clock background color but changes the overall style...xfce-flat is perhaps the most similar

You're right, launcher is there, but pidgin is not included.  :o

The orage background issue is layers deep into xfce configuration, and not something that is likely to be addressed before release. However, a solution may be available, so keep hacking at it.

yes, enabling compositing in window manager tweaks does allow transparency in the panel preferences/appearance

so far have not gleaned much from googles on the subject, could it be a gtk issue?
