Mandrake 9.0 transparent menus

I just started using mandrake 9 for the first time about 2 days ago, and I have noticed on many screenshots that a lot of you guys have transparent menus.   I am wondering how to make that happen.  I have looked through the look and feel, and even through the mandrake control center.   I still haven't found it...i dont' know if its a theme thing or what, but any direction would be much appreciated.

I'm using Red Hat 8 and not Mandrake, however, I think it should be the same for you.

I do it on my system by going to "Style" under "Look & Feel" and then clicking the Effects tab.  The "Menu effect" pull-down has a Make Translucent option, and then you can use the slider to control it.

As jimbb says, this is not really a Mandrake thing, but rather a KDE thing, so using the KDE control centre application you can follow jimbb's advice ... to get that beloved "slightly unreadible, but oh so ... otherworldly effect":-).

No comment has been added lately, so it's time to clean up this TA.

Not to be too picky... "Gns" Yensid... not "Gris" (which means "Pig" in swedish... I could take umbrage if this is a freudian slip:-):-)-
