Hi,

I am not sure whether to post a problem or a feature request.

My issues is that there are a number of places where transparency is affecting the usability and I can't find a way to turn it off. For example, panel tootips against a dark background are difficult to read. On one of my machines Gmenu opens up and is needlessly difficult to read. The switcher has a small number that is hard or me to see. (I am not sure of the cairo-dock version on my other machine. I am almost 80, so readability is important to me. I have been unable to find anything in the settings or elsewhere which would allow me to force opaque backgrounds. I can believe that many users find transparent backgrounds desirable, but not me.

I have used cairo-dock for years and find it essential. I have written several applets using Python that grace my screen every day. So I am a serious user and would appreciate any suggestions.

Thanks in Advance,
Don
