How to make the launcher transparent? [answered]

I added opacity: 0.5 to the Rectangle {} inLauncherView.qml at /usr/share/lipstick-jolla-home-qt5/launcher/, however the launcher is only transparent while opening or closing. When I let my finger off the launcher the background becomes black again. What's wrong here? :)

Thanks, found it! It was the very last line of the patch. For future reference: you need to add line opacity: false to /usr/share/lipstick-jolla-home-qt5/layers/LauncherLayer.qml

There is already a statement opaque: false in this file. Is it ineffective?

@jollailija I think opacity should be set to a float like 0.0, not false. false works, though, because it gets recast to 0.0 while interpreting.

@objectifnul@velox My bad, I meant opaquenot opacity. I don't know what happens if you add opacity: false to the file, but opaque: false does the trick. I blame this on my tiny amount of sleep.
