Yesterday, I decide to change my icon set to Numix. I didn't like the look with numix inherit icons, so I change to elementary.

Then I notice that the WingPanel was always black. When there is not a fullscreen it is has is semi transparent and when there is a fullscreen it is black.

I do my research on the net and i found a way to fix it with dconf and autoadjust-alpha. It works, but when i restart it is the same: The panel is semi transparent (instead of completely transparent)

What can I do?

Sorry about my english, and thanks for the support!

This has basically been asked. This should fix your problem:

How to adjust wingpanel transparency in loki?

If not, I would suggest changing to a different theme then back to elementary. Since the wingpanel theme is dictated by the GTK theme this might just reset things back to the way they should be.
