    Can foreground color be changed for gnome panel buttons?

    Does the text have to be black on all items displayed on the gnome panel (application buttons, menus, time etc)? If not, does anyone know how I can change it?

    With a background image that is not very bright, it is hard to read the button text since it is black.

    I know the opacity can be changed but i dont like that look - it defeats the point of the transparency and creates a visible band.

    There would be no problem if I could just change the foreground text color.

    Any ideas?

    hi beniji !!!

    you can change anything or... everything...
    main menu ---> control center ---> appearance and themes
    change style... themes... you can download new themes... just google... ( actually i dont remember www..........)

    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Found out how to do it.


    I just found out that there are a lot of people moaning about this issue!

    GNOME developers are now targetting an automatic text color changer to make transparency usable in the new gnome 2.16:

    Until then, the color can be changed manually using this technique:

    My desktop now is usable and looking great with transparent panels that are now readable!!!

    Love GNOME, love google too
