    Re: HOWTO: Change Font Color in Gnome Panels

    To change the font color of the drop down menu using aktiwers' script:

    Open terminal
    Type: gedit .gtkrc-2.0
    Delete the line:

    widget_class "*MenuItem*" style "my_color"

    You don't need to delete that line to change the color of the text for the menu item.
    It can be any color all you have to do is create a new style tag. I'm not good at teaching so look at what I did. Its in red
    Code:
    include "/home/autocrosser/.gnome2/panel-fontrc"style "desktop-icon"
    
    {
    NautilusIconContainer::frame_text = 1
    text[NORMAL] = "#000000"
    NautilusIconContainer::normal_alpha = 70
    }
    class "GtkWidget" style "desktop-icon"
    
    #NautilusIconContainer::dark_info_color="#888888"
    #NautilusIconContainer::light_info_color="#bbbbbb"
    #NautilusIconContainer::highlight_alpha=200
    
    style "my_color"
    {
    fg[NORMAL] = "#FFFFFF"
    }
    style "black_text"
    {
    fg[NORMAL] = "#000000"
    }
    widget "*PanelWidget*" style "my_color"
    widget "*PanelApplet*" style "my_color"
    widget_class "*MenuItem*" style "black_text"
    widget_class "*ToolItem*" style "my_color"
    widget_class "*SeparatorMenuitem*" style "my_color"
    widget_class "*SeparatorToolitem*" style "my_color"
    widget_class "*ImageMenuitem*" style "my_color"
    widget_class "*RadioMenuitem*" style "my_color"
    widget_class "*CheckMenuitem*" style "my_color"
    widget_class "*TearoffMenuitem*" style "my_color"
    I imagine this would work on any or all of those.
    hope that helps.
    Imagination is more important than knowledge, smarts only gets you so far.

    Check the package gnome-color-chooser. Quite useful. But changing panel color does not work with it. But you can adjust several other settings, also very nice, that it's is possible to change the width of scrollbars etc.

    Yes this is the correct way to do it!
    Thanks for clearing it out.

    Hi aktiwers---

    I'm glad you guys are using the stuff I wrote (I'm autocrosser)

    For more information about this & other fun mods, take a look at:
    http://developer.gnome.org/doc/API/2.0/gtk/index.html
    The most updated reference on & about GTK inner workings & :
    http://live.gnome.org/GnomeArt/Tutorials
    for some "hands on stuff"

    You might also look at gnomelook.org for some of my "TestAlpha" stuff, & of course you can remod any of them

    Thanks for links!
    Actually I found out how to do this in another (more stupid i guess) way.
    I was googleing all kinds of howto's and Blogs and ended up with this solution.

    Gonna have a look at the TestAlpha now. Thanks!

    Re: HOWTO: Change Font Color in Gnome Panels

    One "weird" side affect is that now all menus related to the panels are now textless, at least, their text is white and their background is white. This goes a little too far.

    Change one of the "ffffff" lines to "000000" or some other html color description.

    Did you get this fixed? Got the same problem.

    EDIT: Oh never mind, the answer was a bit up on the page,
