as i said it sounds like a bad idea a transparent taskbar without borders but if there is a svg file that can be edited, it should be a option to make a field transparent or at least that is what i understood from the manual JohnW posted
Well T6, it may not be your cup of tea, but it certainly is mine. I have been attempting to obtain this particular look for over two years now - how much longer must I wait? I've read the manual that JohnW has posted, and already it seems dated - the directories and files that are really found in /usr/share/apps/desktopthemes/Glassified are not laid out as illustrated; the 'opaque' subdirectory, for example, contains only one file and not a full set. Additionally, the /home/me/.kde4/share/apps/desktopthemes/Glassified folder is nothing more than a stub; it's nearly empty. I have patiently edited file after file after file in Inkscape, restarting the wm completely following each and every edit, yet still
the blasted taskbar background remains totally unchanged.
If the manual that JohnW posted represents the 'official' KDE way of doing things, then it seems to me as if whomever designed the default PCLinuxOS KDE4 theme either didn't read it, or else decided to do it in a completely different, non-KDE way.
So - what am I supposed to do now, then? Where do I look, if the manual isn't truly applicable? What file(s) should I really
be editing? To illustrate the problem more clearly, I've changed the desktop background wallpaper to the older KDE3 Minime09 image, as it is darker and so provides a better contrast:
