comment Unity top bar 100% transparent
You can try in ccsm (compizconfig-settings-manager) > Ubuntu Unity Plugin > General > Background Color setting Opacity to 2. That may help as currently there is a bug where that opacity affects the panel. (the setting of 0 in Background Color > opacity will not produce transparent nor will obviously any high value

comment 'Add To Rhythmbox Play Queue' Nautilus Plugin
If you get hung up some alt. to that old script. Should be fairly easy to fashion a nautilus action for this, would only get a little complicated if you wanted to include directories, in that case you'd want to exclude a number of mimes.(use rhythmbox-client). Or maybe this team would be interested in fashioning a new nautilus python plugin - launchpad.net/~nae-team

comment Is there a way to open synaptic package manager with specific Custom Filter selected?
For gui just alter the Exec= line of /usr/share/applications/synaptic.desktop or create another .desktop for synaptic with a different name of the .desktop & altered Name= & Exec= lines. Eg. Exec=synaptic-pkexec -i=? If the filter has a space then use ', Ex. - Exec=synaptic-pkexec -i='Upgradable (upstream)'

comment How to change dash transparency?
The gconftool command does not work anymore in 14.04. Can you please update it? – king_julien - No reason to do so. This question is 2.5 yr.s old & for 11.10. Maybe ask a new question (hint: Dash opacity is controlled by the opacity level of the 'background' color, ie. only can be adjusted when using a custom or black background color

comment Unity : Are these bugs?
Concerning 1 & 3. alt+f2 is for running commands. It will also return results as you type from currently installed that match what you've typed. The nautilus search maintains it's own set of default columns, adjust while in search mode by r. clicking in the column name bar.

comment “Package dependencies cannot be resolved” when installing codecs
It's possible that if Multi-Arch: same is added to libopus0 in the control file this can be resolved. I tried via my proposed media ppa & seems ok though would be hesitant to do so in a ppa that people use if not 100% correct for any reason. (trusty multimedia is my ppa). If you wish to test let me know though the proposed ppa is not for general use at all, would place in a temp standalone ppa for testing.
