I figured out how to make the Whiskermenu both dark and have some transparency (I set it to .9 – I don’t like stuff too transparent). Have a look:
I put in a request: https://github.com/gottcode/xfce4-whisk … /issues/87
Please leave comments telling the developer how much you want transparency for Whiskermenu.
Here’s my post on google+ explaining how I did it: https://plus.google.com/116390612729890 … etxCAj7MZT?April 24, 2014 at 8:55 am #71105FrojoeKeymaster
Because what XFCE needs is moar pretty.April 24, 2014 at 6:33 pm #71106
I started /w CDE. IMHO XFCE4 looks just fine.April 24, 2014 at 6:57 pm #71107Pedro MateusKeymaster
Compositing in XFCE (especially with XFWM4) is a performance killer. If you want eye-candy KDE is better, it has the most optimized composited window manager (KWin) and transparency is just about everywhere.April 25, 2014 at 4:33 pm #71109linuxgnuruParticipant

I never heard of CDE. Google showed me this: http://pgbovine.net/cde.html which is CDE: Automatically create portable Linux applications. Somehow, I don’t think that’s what Venn started with.
I know what twn is, but I’m guessing that’s a joke.
So, what you’re all telling me is that transparency on Whiskermenu isn’t something you’d have the developer worry about.April 28, 2014 at 2:11 pm #71115linuxgnuruParticipant
CDE is Common Desktop Environment; last I used it was with HP-UX (and I think HP still owns it) twm; “tiny window manager” was really all you had to use back in the early 90s…May 1, 2014 at 11:02 pm #71126linuxgnuru wrote:CDE is Common Desktop Environment; last I used it was with HP-UX (and I think HP still owns it) twm; “tiny window manager” was really all you had to use back in the early 90s…
Billions of years ago in the futures past I was a SUN admin so yeah. CDE allthethings!colinkeenan wrote:So, what you’re all telling me is that transparency on Whiskermenu isn’t something you’d have the developer worry about.
Like CDE, XFCE is a get shite done desktop. I was irked when they introduced desktop icons.
