Bug Description

TEST CASE:
1. Open ccsm
2. Go to unity plugin settings Experimental tab, set Dash Blur to "No Blur" (disable)
3. Press and hold the Super key
   -> The shortcut overlay should not be completely transparent, but darkened.

Original description:

If you disable blur entirely in CCSM or other, the shortcut overlay (and the alt+tab switcher) becomes completely transparent, as opposed to the dash's darkening.

It makes it inconsistent and very hard to read.
