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?


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

Thanks, don't think I would have found it on my own.  ;D

Looks like compositing has to be enabled in the window manager to unlock several of these options. XFCE users please chime in.

Orage

with the xfce desktop panels, one can right click on the panel and select  panel/ add new item.

the dialog appears with options, select orage panel clock, the clock appears on panel.

Right click on the orage panel clock and select properties.

the clock properties options at the top of the dialog include check boxs to toggle foreground and background color. with a color selector.

checking the background box should change the clocks background, and one should be able to select a color more closely matching the panel background.

I have the panel semi transparent and wallpaper color blends but the clock background remains the image of the default panel. When it works, one can more closely match the panel color and orage panel clock color.

at one time it was transparent but of late the background color is the only option to match the panels color.



will try grip again as suggested

Thanks very much

Package grip 3.5.1 tests good. You should also install "vorbis-tools" with it, as it provides the default audio encoder "oggenc".

cannot set background color for orage panel clock

Not familiar with orage, would you please describe the steps you use to get to where you select a background?

Can you slapt-get -u and slapt-get -i grip with untested enabled?  Just updated it to 3.5.1 and that should also fix the dep issue.

"FINAL" is in "final" internal testing, and will be announced when we are sure no new bugs have crept into the final ISO.

just saw VL64-7.2-STD-FINAL.iso   over test repo, but didn't hear   about release announcement   yet over forum.

should i wait for while (in case of further version  might  be coming as well)?

I would say Dingo was the most beautiful puppy ever. the little dog in the clouds strangly made the standard desktop awesome. funny what a wallpaper can do. A very handy usb distro.
