I want to tweak the top panel of the window,and I founded two kits named "wingpanel-slim" and "super-wingpanel" can do what I want to (auto hide and ...)

I tried to install the from several PPA but no one success.

Both wingpanel-slim and super-wingpanel were developed and maintained by a developer on Launchpad called ~heathbar. Unfortunately, it looks like he abandonded both projects and did not update them to work with Freya (last change to wingpanel-slim was 2013-11-19, last change to super-wingpanel was 2014-03-04).

Therefore, sadly, there is (currently) no way to use one of those on Freya. Maybe development will be resumed by someone else, but at this very moment, it's simply not possible.

    I believe Heath Paddock said (on Google+) that due to the new headerbars which are omnipresent in Freya a slim panel would make no sense, so he deliberately ceased development.

  • Is there any way to auto hide or customize the top banner? Commented Jul 31, 2015 at 9:28
  • @AaronZhang if you're looking for customization options for wingpanel, please open another question. That's not really related to your current question and follow-up questions as comments are generally discouraged :)

  • Not currently, but there is a bug bounty currently worth $80 that might be what you're looking for.
