[SOLVED] Remove border from Whisker Menu

I desire to remove the border surrounding the Whisker Menu window. CSS selector #whiskermenu-window seems to have no effect. Any help would be appreciated.

Re: [SOLVED] Remove border from Whisker Menu

Hello and welcome.

Which border are you referring to? Also, which Appearance (Gtk) theme are you using? Perhaps sharing a screenshot might help.

Re: [SOLVED] Remove border from Whisker Menu

I am referring to the border around the whole Whisker Menu, don't know how to specify any further.

My theme is Mint-Y-Dark, if that is a Gtk theme.

Here is a hopefully helpful screenshot. The border I want removed is the surrounding border, visible in the top and right of the image.

Re: [SOLVED] Remove border from Whisker Menu

Since nobody has answered, I will add another picture in case my request was not understood.

I've colored part of the border I want removed in red. It covers the whole outline of the Whisker Menu and I'd like to have both the panel and the Whisker Menu look like they're "blending together". The panel border can be removed so I presume the border of the Whisker Menu is also removable.

Re: [SOLVED] Remove border from Whisker Menu

Sorry, I missed this post. For the whiskermenu border, try:

#whiskermenu-window .launchers-pane  {border-color: transparent}

If it doesn't work, which distro and version of xfce4-whiskermenu are you using?

Re: [SOLVED] Remove border from Whisker Menu

It did not work.

I am using Linux Mint Xfce version 21.2, Whisker Menu version 2.7.2.

Re: [SOLVED] Remove border from Whisker Menu

Hmm. I have Mint 21.2 Xfce in a VM. I set the theme to Mint-Y-Dark but I'm not seeing the same as you. Do you have any other whiskermenu tweaks? If so, can you post them back?

Also, can you try:

#whiskermenu-window .categories  {border-color: transparent}

Re: [SOLVED] Remove border from Whisker Menu

After messing around, your previous answer does work; however, it affects the wrong border. It seems to be functionally equivalent to:

#whiskermenu-window .frame {border-color: transparent;}

That does not remove the border around the whole Whisker Menu, it removes the border between the categories list and the applications list, which I had already removed with the above code.

Your latest answer seems to have no effect for me (or perhaps it as well conflicts with another CSS tweak I have applied).

Here are the contents of my gtk.css:

#XfcePanelWindow {
    -XfcePanelWindow-popup-delay: 0;
    -XfcePanelWindow-popdown-delay: 0;
}

.xfce4-panel {
    background-color: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.6);
}

#whiskermenu-window .frame {
    border-color: transparent;
}

#whiskermenu-window box > box > button {
    padding-left: 8px;
    padding-right: 8px;
}

#whiskermenu-window button {
    padding: 3px;
}

#whiskermenu-window {
    background-color: rgb(0, 0, 0);
}

Re: [SOLVED] Remove border from Whisker Menu

Another hmmm.

In my Mint 21.2 Xfce VM, I use your gtk.css file with the Mint-Y-Dark theme and I see (no border):

When I add:

#whiskermenu-window .categories {border-style: solid; border-width: 1px; border-color: red}

...I get (using red to show created border):
2.png

Can we confirm your Appearance theme?

xfconf-query -c xsettings -p /Net/ThemeName

Re: [SOLVED] Remove border from Whisker Menu

That, however, is not the border I am talking about. I am talking about the border outside the one marked in red, the grey outer one encompassing the whole Whisker Menu.

I have highlighed the border in question in yellow. Perhaps this time I can actually make a helpful image, apologies in case I fail again. And yes, I am using Mint-Y-Dark theme, as running the command you posted showed me.

Hopefully helpful image

Re: [SOLVED] Remove border from Whisker Menu

Ok, I see. Try this:

#whiskermenu-window frame>border {border-color: transparent}

Re: [SOLVED] Remove border from Whisker Menu

It worked, thank you very much! Good thing there's nothing you can't fix.
