It is very simple & looks elegant indeed.

Following are the steps on Zorin OS (I have tested on version 4 & 5, I hope it is correct for other versions)

  1. Step 1
    1. Right click on the panel at bottom & select 'Properties'
    2. Click 'Background' tab
    3. Select 'Solid color'
    4. Change the style to select transparency as required
  2. Step 2
    1. Right click on the Desktop empty area & select 'Change Desktop Background'
    2. Click 'Theme' tab
    3. Click 'Customize'
    4. Select 'Controls' tab
    5. Click 'Zorin OS Mac'
