Failed units:

I run with all my windows transparent. Blur is off. I’m using the Dr460nized theme. I also use Kvantum to make the Dolphin file screen opaque. This really works well for me, esp for my Conky which gives me a true transparent background. My issue is I would like the application menu to be opaque as well but can’t figure out how to do it without ruining the transparency theme wide.

If I edit the top bar it seems to work but on reboot it resets back to being fully transparent. Am I missing something simple or is this just not possible? Thanks!
