#576 Application launcher icon not showing transparent background

lxpanel (246)

Originally, I reported this bug to Debian Bug Tracking System <650821@bugs.debian.org> Dec. 3, 2011. I submitted a followup today.

Summary: Application launcher icons are not showing transparent background on initialization of the panel.

Here is a copy of the followup message.

Package: lxpanel
Version: 0.5.10-1
Followup-For: Bug #650821 (Debian Bug Tracking System <650821@bugs.debian.org>)

This bug still exists in v0.5.10. I am fairly certain this is an
initialization bug when the panel is in auto-hide mode. Right-clicking on the
panel after initialization, choosing Panel Settings, and changing a value that
causes the panel to be repainted fixes the issue for the rset of the session.
My usual practice is to increase the value for Margin from 0 to 1 and back to 0
on the Panel Preferences dialog and close the dialog. After doing so,
application icons show a transparent backgruond for the rest of the session.
These are the icons next to the Menu button/icon, not the ones that show which
applications are currently open in the current workspace.
