    Re: HOWTO: Change Font Color in Gnome Panels

    Sorry for being slighty offtopic (since this thread is about the panel)...
    I'm trying to change the text-frame transparency for nautilus, especially for the desktop icons... and this just doesn't work for me
    Code:
    style "desktop-icon"
    {
      NautilusIconContainer::frame_text = 1
      text[NORMAL] = "#000000"
      NautilusIconContainer::normal_alpha = 30
    }
    class "GtkWidget" style "desktop-icon"
    Turning the text-frame on/off works, changing colors works, but changing the alpha value simply doesn't do anything ( I'm killing GNOME with ctrl+backspace in order to log back in -> all changes except transparency are applied)

    I'm not using XGL or any other fancy stuff, my distro is Feisty upgraded (not a fresh install) from a quite unaltered Edgy.
    I'm using the proprietary ATI fglrx driver for my Radeon 9800XTX... though I don't realize how this should interfere with the settings in .gtkrc

    I've even tried using XFCE's label_alpha = 30 instead of normal_alpha = 30... doesn't help either.

    Edit: Gnome-Color-Chooser lets me set the alpha value and writes it correctly to .gtkrc-2.0-gnome-color-chooser (and there's an include in .gtkrc-2.0), but still no effect visible.

    Thanks for any hints!

    Did you goto the links I posted earlier in the thread? If not, goto the GTK info page--I think it might have the info you need.

    Also, look thru: http://developer.gnome.org/doc/

    And for more weight that you might want: http://developer.gnome.org/projects/...2.0/index.html

    I'm having the same problem with Feisty, see my post #50 here.

    The code I'm using worked perfectly well with both Dapper and Edgy.

    Code:
    style "panel_color"
    {
    fg[NORMAL] = "#whatever color you want"
    }
    Then I just changed the style of PanelWidget and PanelApplet from "my_color" to "panel_color"

    This way you have all of your normal black menus, but the panel is whatever you want it to be.

    @ autocrosser
    Thanks for the links... though they made me toy around with gtk+2 and write some basic applications, I haven't made any prgress concerning my (and alanh's) transparency problem
    I think it might be related to my online-upgrading from Edgy, but I've no idea where to start searching.

    Great Thread! Thanks

    Now I just need to see if I can figure out (RTFM) changing the desktop icons text to another color and dumping the box around the text
