i want to change the systemtray with applets also transparent, when i apply transparency only the taskbar becomes transparent. i tried with rayleigh theme, yes the systemtray becomes transparent but i loose the icon theme, which i dont want also i dont like the rayleigh theme.

my requirement is to have the default icon theme and panel theme, in addition to make the systemtray transparent. enclosed the my current desktop screenshot
