Change Font Color in Gnome Panels

 

I don't know if you are like me, but I prefer darker themes.

But with Ubuntu no UI interffface is present be default to change the color of the font in Gnome panels. Here the simple way I found.

  1. Open a terminal and type:

    Haskell-Code:

    sudo gedit .gtkrc-2.0



  2. Then a empty file will open so copy-paste this code:

    Haskell-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=20
    style "panel"
    {
    fg[NORMAL] = "#ffffff"
    # fg[PRELIGHT] = "#000000″

    # fg[ACTIVE] = "#000000"
    # fg[SELECTED] = "#000000″

    # fg[INSENSITIVE] = "#8A857C"
    # bg[NORMAL] = "#000000″

    # bg[PRELIGHT] = "#dfdfdf"
    # bg[ACTIVE] = "#D0D0D0″

    # bg[SELECTED] = "#D8BB75″

    # bg[INSENSITIVE] = "#EFEFEF"
    # base[NORMAL] = "#ffffff"
    # base[PRELIGHT] = "#EFEFEF"
    # base[ACTIVE] = "#D0D0D0″

    # base[SELECTED] = "#DAB566″

    # base[INSENSITIVE] = "#E8E8E8″

    # text[NORMAL] = "#161616″

    # text[PRELIGHT] = "#000000″

    # text[ACTIVE] = "#000000″

    # text[SELECTED] = "#ffffff"
    # text[INSENSITIVE] = "#8A857C"
    }
    widget "*PanelWidget*" style "panel"
    widget "*PanelApplet*" style "panel"
    class "*Panel*" style "panel"
    widget_class "*Mail*" style "panel"
    class "*notif*" style "panel"
    class "*Notif*" style "panel"
    class "*Tray*" style "panel"
    class "*tray*" style "panel"


    That time I change the color code of: fg[NORMAL] = "#FFFFFF". You can change this fffor any color by using the #RRGGBB equivalent code.




  3. Save. Close the editor. Re-log and Enjoy!



  If you dont know the code for the color you want you can go here, Or you can use gcolor2.   To install it type in a terminal



Haskell-Code:



sudo apt-get install gcolor2


And when you are done, type: gcolor2 and voila!



I hope this little trick will make it eiser for you!
