This command

gsettings set org.gnome.shell.extensions.dash-to-dock transparency-mode 

can have these values: 'FIXED' 'DEFAULT' 'DYNAMIC' 'ADAPTIVE'.

But none makes the dock bar completely transparent, that is, only the icons are visible.

any ideas?

Open Terminal and run the following command first to allow custom alpha values for Ubuntu dock

gsettings set org.gnome.shell.extensions.dash-to-dock customize-alphas true

Then run the following to set the minimum alpha value (i.e. when a window is not maximised or touching the top-bar or dock)

gsettings set org.gnome.shell.extensions.dash-to-dock min-alpha 0

Finally, if you want, run the following to set the maximum alpha value (i.e. when a window is maximised)

gsettings set org.gnome.shell.extensions.dash-to-dock max-alpha 0

Then log out and log in again.

If you are using gnome extension Ubuntu Dock, you can shut that off and turn on Dash to Dock. Make your changes in there and then switch them back. I don't like Dash to Dock because it causes two docks to be displayed when I click on Activities. I just use it to configure the dock.

For those getting here from google, this works on Ubuntu 20.10

gsettings set org.gnome.shell.extensions.dash-to-dock background-opacity 0
