Is there a way that I can use Ubuntu already existing Gaussian Blur code and apply it to other UI elements?

You can clearly see it being used in the top panel:

And on the Dash:

So, I know the code already exists to do it, and it is (most likely) possible, but why hasn't anyone used it in other UI elements like the launcher?

There are some elements that are translucent for whatever reason like when choosing to upload a file:

But it doesn't use the Gaussian blur. And frankly doesn't look good without the blurring. So how can I fix this?

    Version tags are to be used when the problem is specific to a version. Neither Gaussian blur nor Unity dash nor the other apps not using it are specific to 16.04. – muru Nov 10 '17 at 7:46
  • It may be using code from the <a href="askubuntu.com/questions/18413/… Toolkit</a> which Unity uses. – user6130358 Feb 11 '18 at 16:57
