Unity 2d icons and launcher:

enter image description here In unity 2d, the icons looks darker than in 3d. In 3d, the icons have a clearer color to them because of the transparency they're given. I really like the 2d dark color. I have searched frantically and have found NOTHING about this. I have used confity, compiz (with extra plugins), gconf-editor, and searched for compiz rules. Nothing.

EDIT: I understand that you can edit the top panel's opacity with compiz settings manager, but I haven't found a way to do this for the Dock/Launcher alone.

I tried it some time ago, but actually it's impossible. Hope it change! – Rodrigo Martins Jul 21 '11 at 2:45

As discussed in this question, you can adjust the background opacity if you use unity-df.
