    Some resolution to the Gnome desktop font issue here:

    Also, a link to a neat utility to allow the Gnome desktop to be customised through a GUI.

    Re: HOWTO: Change Font Color in Gnome Panels

    Should this script work in Feisty? I've tried it but it doesn't seem to be working for me.

    Edit: Nevermind. It does work. Don't know what I was doing wrong!

    Im trying to change the font colour in Gutsy Gibbon and Its not working for me... any ideas?

    Edit: Works now! However you need to use this piece of code to reload the panels: killall gnome-panel

    Good stuff. Building on this, is there a way to get the same white-bold-on-black behavior that the Window Titlebar text has?

    The attached image should show what I'm talking about.

    I'd like the same Bold + Shadow effect to also be on the panel. It might end up being too much, but I'd still like to try.

    Re: HOWTO: Change Font Color in Gnome Panels

    I'm using gutsy, I can change the colour of the top panel's writing but it changes the File Edit View bar also. I've tried to change one of the lines rather than my_color and it didn't work and gave me this;
    louis@ubuntu:~$ gedit .gtkrc-2.0
    /home/louis/.gtkrc-2.0:20: error: invalid string constant "#FFFFFF", expected valid string constant
    Am I doing something drastically wrong?

    Scroll a little up and see. It has been discussed:

    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"
    Then change the "black_text" color code to whatever you like.

    Re: HOWTO: Change Font Color in Gnome Panels

    Is there a way to make this script apply to only the top panel?

    My top panel is transapent so a lighter color font is preferable. And I have the User Switcher and the defualt Date and Time applets in that panel.

    My bottom panel is still the defualt white color.

    The problem I'm having is that when I change the font color with this script to white the text in the bottom panel within the window boxes (can't think of the right term at the moment, i.e. if I have Firefox open, there is a little box in the bottom panel that says the title of the page I'm viewing, if I have the terminal open, is says the text trom the terminal, both have little icons and the control the window--minimize etc. ) fades into the white background. I tried the black_text fix thus
    Code:
    widget "*PanelApplet*" style "black_text"
    This fixed the text in the window boxes, but it also change the User Switcher and the Date and Time text in the top panel to black.

    So I was wondering if there is a way to specify which panel the code would be applied to. Or, alternatively, which widgets to apply the code to.

    Thanks,

    Dustin
