Transparentize your panels when there are no any maximized windows

Transparent panels - A Cinnamon extension

Transparentize your panels when there are no any maximized windows

Screenshot

Themes supported

Transparent panels supports every theme in principle, but there are some themes that may not fit well. For such cases, the authors (or users) of the theme may override the panel-transparent class in their cinnamon.css, which can be enabled in the extension preferences.

Installation

Cinnamon Spices

Download it from here or search for "Transparent panels" in your Cinnamon extension settings.

From source

To download the source and install it, execute the following as a normal user (you will need git).

$ git clone --depth 1 https://github.com/germanfr/cinnamon-transparent-panels.git
$ cd cinnamon-transparent-panels/ && ./install.sh

The above will download the source from GitHub and it will be copied to your ~/.local/share/cinnamon/extensions/ folder. If you don't have git installed, you can download a zip from here. Run ./install.sh from the folder extracted from the zip.

Changelog

Very cool. With Mint-Y-Yltra-Dark theme works excellent.

please fix the icon in the upper right corner
and make the drop-down panel transparent too
and this does not work when any window is maximized on the whole screen

Nope. You have to go the traditional way and use a transparent theme.

Is there any way to make the panel transparent in a theme like Arc, Pop, or Adapta?

It's not compatible with Cinnamon 3.4 on Linux Mint 18.2. I opened an issue <a href="https://github.com/germanfr/cinnamon-transparent-panels/issues/10">here</a>.

I already fixed it, I have to push it here. Meanwhile you can just dismiss it. I'ts just a warning but it is fully compatible.

If you upgrade from 18.1 to 18.2 it will throw an error unless you update the extension immediately prior to the upgrade. If you don't do that it's just a case of removing and readding the extension to get the fixed version.

Keep in mind that version was old already when this extension was released. Some things may not work because I have no way to test it but the last time I checked it it was working fine. Submit the issue with more details and I'll see what can I do.
