How to remove highligh for open apps?

Greetings All,

I was just wondering, if there was a way to remove the dark highlight that's around the icon in the window area in the xfce panel, and just have it transparent?


The FULL Desktop is this image >>>  https://ibb.co/hYm0kD4


The offendeing dark highlight around the windows (open app) button is this one >>> https://ibb.co/p1QQdTd

Yes I do have composting on.

Thanks for ideas...

Best Wishes,

Re: How to remove highligh for open apps?

For Xfce 4.12 (specifically, the xfce4-panel 4.12.x branch, based on GTK2), the following snippet in ~/.gtkrc-2.0 will overlay a transparent element on all tasklist items:

style "mypanel" 
{
      engine "pixmap"
        {
                image
                {
                        function                = BOX
                        recolorable             = TRUE
                        state                   = PRELIGHT
                        file                    = "panel-button-hover.png"
                        border                  = { 1, 1, 0, 0 }
                        stretch                 = TRUE
                }
                image
                {
                        function                = BOX
                        recolorable             = TRUE
                        state                   = ACTIVE
                        file                    = "panel-button-hover.png"
                        border                  = { 1, 1, 0, 0 }
                        stretch                 = TRUE
                }
                image
                {
                        function                = BOX
                        recolorable             = TRUE
                        state                   = INSENSITIVE
                        file                    = "panel-button-hover.png"
                        border                  = { 1, 1, 0, 0 }
                        stretch                 = TRUE
                }
                image
                {
                        function                = BOX
                        recolorable             = TRUE
                        state                   = NORMAL
                        file                    = "panel-button-hover.png"
                        border                  = { 1, 1, 0, 0 }
                        stretch                 = TRUE
                }
                image
                {
                        function                = BOX
                        recolorable             = TRUE
                        state                   = SELECTED
                        file                    = "panel-button-hover.png"
                        border                  = { 1, 1, 0, 0 }
                        stretch                 = TRUE
                }
        }
}
widget "*tasklist*"             style "mypanel"

...where "panel-button-hover.png" is a 1x1 transparent pixel in your home directory.

Restart the panel for the effect to take place.
