    Hmmm--That is a new addition to the panels and might be coded differently....I'll look into it. What is the menu popup speed like?

    Post Re: HOWTO: Change Font Color in Gnome Panels

    Ok--The fast-user-switch-applet uses GTK Dialogs, so I added the comment lines at the bottom of the gtkrc-2.0

    Post back to see if that worked for you.


    gtk-menu-popup-delay = 2

    {
    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"
    }
    widget "*PanelWidget*" style "my_color"
    widget "*PanelApplet*" style "my_color"
    widget_class "*MenuItem*" style "my_color"
    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"
    widget_class "*GtkDialog*" style "my_color"
    widget_class "*GtkLabel*" style "my_color"
    widget_class "*GtkRadioButton*" style "my_color"
    widget_class "*GtkCheckButton*" style "my_color"
    widget_class "*GtkLabel*" style "my_color"

    Re: HOWTO: Change Font Color in Gnome Panels

    I feel lost...
    I have followed the instructions of the first post, line by line, and nothing changed with my fonts... I've been reading the thread, but didn't find anyonw with the same problem. Am I missing something? How could I do it to check what is, or to give you some more info?


    [EDIT] forget about my question, I saw the answer two posts above... shame on me

    Re: HOWTO: Change Font Color in Gnome Panels

    It's me again... I could not fix the problem. I've tried with the first line, without the first line, with the delay... and I can't change the font color. This is my last trial
    Code:
    gtk-menu-popup-delay = 2
    
    {
    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"
    }
    widget "*PanelWidget*" style "my_color"
    widget "*PanelApplet*" style "my_color"
    widget_class "*MenuItem*" style "my_color"
    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"
    widget_class "*GtkDialog*" style "my_color"
    widget_class "*GtkLabel*" style "my_color"
    widget_class "*GtkRadioButton*" style "my_color"
    widget_class "*GtkCheckButton*" style "my_color"
    widget_class "*GtkLabel*" style "my_color"
    Can you hint me what am I doing wrong, please?

    By the way, when I do
    Code:
    gedit .gtkrc-2.0
    I get the following warning
    Code:
    /home/izeddin/.gtkrc-2.0:3: error: unexpected character `{', expected keyword - e.g. `style'

    Finally I found a way it works for me in Edgy, so I will post a small howto do this below.

    1)
    In terminal write:
    Code:
    gedit .gtkrc-2.0
    2)
    An empty Text document will open, and you need to copy/paste this into it:


    And save.


    3)
    Change the color code of: fg[NORMAL] = "#FFFFFF"
    To whatever you like, and the text in gnome panels will become that color.
    I made the part you need to change red.


    4) (optinal)
    If you dont know the code for the color you want, you can use this little handy program.

    In Terminal type:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install gcolor2
    And when you are done, type:
    Code:
    gcolor2
    To open the program.

    5)
    Screenshots below, of my Gnome Panels with white text fonts. And one of the program gcolor2.

    Good Luck!

    I found this thread after Googling, and it is exactly what I need!

    One thing though - how do you get it to work???

    I followed your instructions exactly as they are here. I mean I literally copied and pasted this text into gedit .gtkrc-2.0. All that happened was that menu text in active windows appeared white - as did the context menu text. I thought this was supposed to change the Gnome Panel text.....

    Sorry for bumping an old thread, but i can confirm that the first post on this topic works for me for the new ubuntu (9.04 jaunty jackalope)

    I was searching for a way to do this for a while, this was really helpful.

    seems to work fine on my jaunty 64 installation.

    well, except for "applications - places - system" ....the drop down menus from those are the colors that i have chosen, but the words "applications - places - system" in the panel are still the default white.

    anyway to get those to match the new colors as well??

    thanks
