indicator plugin icon transparency

Hello fellow xfce freaks,
I have a panel setup to be transparrent wich works great but with the xfce dusk theme all the indicator plugin icons have this grey background. I'm wondering how I could get rid of it.
My appologies if this has allready been answerd but i couldn't find it back in the forum.

Re: indicator plugin icon transparency

Have a read through this and this thread. The end result is a gtk "hack" that looks like this:

#panel transparency tweak
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
                }
        }
}

widget "*Xfce*Panel*"                style "mypanel"
class "*Xfce*Panel*"                style "mypanel"
widget "*PanelWidget*"              style "mypanel"
widget "*PanelApplet*"              style "mypanel"
widget "*fast-user-switch*"         style "mypanel"
widget "*GenMon*" 		    style "mypanel"
widget "*CPUFreq*Applet*"           style "mypanel"
widget "*indicator-applet*"         style "mypanel"
class "PanelApp*"                   style "mypanel"
class "PanelToplevel*"              style "mypanel"
widget_class "*PanelToplevel*"      style "mypanel"
widget_class "*notif*"              style "mypanel"
widget_class "*Notif*"              style "mypanel"
widget_class "*Tray*"               style "mypanel"
widget_class "*tray*"               style "mypanel"
widget_class "*computertemp*"       style "mypanel"
widget_class "*Applet*Tomboy*"      style "mypanel"
widget_class "*Applet*Netstatus*"   style "mypanel"

...which also requires the presence of a panel-button-hover.png file that is available to download in post #10 of the first link. It should remove the background from the icons. Or at least it did in pre-14.04. I haven't tried it on a xubuntu 14.04 install yet.

Re: indicator plugin icon transparency

thanks ToZ I'll give it a read...

That didn't seem to do it, I still have these dark square behind my indicator items...
But i found another dark theme that I like better so....
Thanx anyway
