The steps are now revised a bit and they should remove the non-transparent backgrounds of the indicator applet and other icons on the panel for both Mint-X-Metal and Mint-X themes.

Anyone know the file location of the hideous power inhibit applet icon that looks like a car "no entry" sign so that I can change it for something a bit more subtle?

The icon you described is likely used by the Gnome Inhibit Applet, a program installed by Gnome Power Manager. The icon's filename is gpm-inhibit.png or gpm-inhibit.svg, stored at /usr/share/gnome-power-manager/icons/hicolor/[resolutions]/status

The [resolutions] means various folders for 16x16 up to 48x48, and scalable. Probably depending on your screen resolution, try each one of them and good luck.

Next question: How do I replace an icon like this with another image as it won't let me?

It's a restricted folder so you need to type gksu nautilus in Terminal to bring up the file manager with the admin right to replace the file in that folder.

On the safe side, try to rename the original file to end with .bak then name your new file exactly as the original file for the program to pick up unless it refuses to do so knowing that you've tried to cheat him.

You're welcome. Try to keep the new icon file in the same resolution and file size for it to likely be working. If it still doesn't, consider log out and log back in to try again after replacement of the file as the program might read the old file from the memory it loaded after logging in depending on how the program is designed.
