I want to change Mate panel's background type from a bash script. So far, tried to set it to color with:
gsettings set org.mate.panel.toplevel.background 'color'
but that doesn't seem to work. How should I do it?

On my 16.04 LTS I can set background to color using
dconf write /org/mate/panel/toplevels/bottom/background/type "'color'"
But please note that you need to have correct values of opacity and color. For example the code below will set green background with full opacity:
dconf write /org/mate/panel/toplevels/bottom/background/color "'#00ff00'" dconf write /org/mate/panel/toplevels/bottom/background/opacity 65535
To disable color use
dconf write /org/mate/panel/toplevels/bottom/background/type "'none'"
Note: got this solution while monitoring the situation with
dconf watch / on the terminal.
