I'm not sure what you mean with dropdown opacity.
I noticed though that "Panel preferences -> Appearance", "Window Manager Tweaks -> Compositor" and "Terminal Preferences -> Appearance (Transparent background)" have different ways to specify the opacity.
I'll try illustrate here bellow:
Alpha: ========[ ]= 0-100
Enter: ========[ ]= 0-100
Leave: ========[ ]= 0-100
Window Manager Tweaks
Opacity of window decorations:
/Transparent/ ========[ ]= /Opaque/
[Transparent background |v]
Transparency: ========[ ]= 0.0-1.00
Maybe we should make them all more consistent?
A comment to the patch itself, instead of adding another guint value, what do you think about keep the 0.0-1.0 range and 0.01 step and instead just change the way the value is presented, using the "format-value" signal?
format_value_callback (GtkScale *scale,
return g_strdup_printf ("%.0f", gtk_scale_get_digits (scale), value * 100.0);
