Bug Description

cardapio applet button inherits only default panel config. if you set a transparency or a backgroung image for a fading effect, applet button remain with full opaque gtk theme default color.
this is only for version > 0.9.93, revision 129 if i'm not mistaken

This seems to be theme-dependent. When I use a theme like Radiance, for example, this works as expected:

1) Background: None - looks like my Gtk theme
2) Background: Solid color - looks like the color I choose, even if transparent
3) Background: Image - looks like the image, even if transparent

But when I try Clearlooks, items (2) and (3) above look like (1).

yes, you're right.
but what is really strange is that until version 0.9.93, the applet button behavior was the expected.
I'll try me too to figure out what's happening...

same theme, same system.
panel with half transparent background image. same behavior with standard panel transparency.

up: rev. 129
bottom: rev. 162

Well, there were other bugs up to version 0.9.93, which is why I changed that part of the code :) . I will try to find out what's happening, although these kinds of bugs are tough -- the Gnome applet API offers very little debugging help... ugh...

I have this problem too with themes. The icon is white and opaque when we add the applet while using a theme which isn't Ubuntu default (Ambiance). But if we put the applet with the default theme (ambiance) and then change the theme, it will look fine...

2 screenshots to show you (custom theme) (default theme)

Btw I changed back to "incomplete"

Sorry about the duplicate bug. I've gone through several themes that didn't give problems (I can give those if it's needed), but on installing the mac 4 lin theme ( it remains blue as if it's pressed. Seeing as this theme is pretty exhaustive (also changes nautilus for example) it may be related. I'm using Cardapio 0.9.114 on Ubuntu 10.04 64 bit on a Dell XPS 1330 laptop.

Hey there,

bug still exists.. I am using Cardapio since 2 months with a transparent panel but I never expirienced this problem... I just updated to version 0.9.147 and it turned out that cardapio ignores the transparency of my panel. That looks strange, until fixed I am going to use the normal gnome-menu.

Thanks in advance
