Changing font color of the panel

February 3, 2009

In ~/.gtkrc-2.0 insert this line

include “/home/<user_name>/.gnome2/panel-fontrc”

then create the file panel-fontrc in .gnome2, which consists of the following lines:

style “my_color”
fg[NORMAL] = “#4353b6”
widget “*PanelWidget*” style “my_color”
widget “*PanelApplet*” style “my_color”

and that’s it. All you have to do is choose the color and do a killall gnome-panel. The second “widget” line affects only the applets and the first one does the rest.
To chose the color you can use the color select dialog in GIMP.
