Description:

Plasma 5 applet that enables/disables transparency for plasma panels. Plasma 5.17.3 is required to work correctly and enable/disable panel shadows when needed.

How To Use:
1. Unlock your widgets and add transparency button in a plasma panel
2. Activate it and your plasma panel will become completely transparent without altering your plasma theme files.
3. Based on Plasma Desktop version:
- For Plasma >= 5.18, exit Configure Layout desktop mode in order to hide the transparency button completely
- For Plasma < 5.18, lock your widgets in the end in order to hide the transparency button completely.


Reguirements:
- Plasma Desktop >= 5.18 - you need v0.2.x
- Plasma Desktop < 5.18 - you need v0.1.x

You may be aware of the fact that lock/unlock widgets is on its way out of Plasma.
It's already disabled in 5.18 beta.
So another way to show/hide the button will be needed (for some it already is - Neon Testing and Kubuntu 20.04-dev for example).

Thank you. I have forwarded your comment on the Kubuntu forum.
Maybe they know ;·)

Ok, you should try v0.2.0 that requires Plasma>=5.18. When you exit Configure Layout mode of Plasma 5.18 the applet should become hidden. I have not tested it but I believe it should work.

We're working on it... not with much success though. I'll let you know if and when. Thanks again.

after you install v0.2.0 you need to restart your desktop in order to check it out.

I didn't know but also I don't know if new global editing mode is accessible to applets, the applet main purpose was to help Latte send screen geometries to Plasma, in Plasma 5.18 this is provided by a new Plasma mechanism. So there is big chance that the applet will become obsolete if there is no easy way for applets to access new global editing mode.

A widget that I hope someday will be developed for Plasma, would be able to show / hide icons from other widgets by simply clicking on the arrow icon, like the one in Deepin.

@PSIFIDOTOS, would it be too complicated to develop such a widget for Plasma?

If it is a necessary function, then it should be implemented within org.kde.plasma.systemtray, by KDE team. But maybe some one can fork org.kde.plasma.systemtray and implement it.

It would be great to have a dynamic transparency option in the Plasma default panel through this widget.

1. Issues at github page
2. Why don't you use Latte?

Yes, I already use Latte for this reason and also for the possibility of centering widgets in the dashboard!
Two things that are currently not possible in the standard Plasma panel and I would very much like it to be possible, which one day knows not to implement such features ...
