I know how to change the colors of the panels. But on the parts were the ubuntu symbol, the menus (Applications, Places, and Systems), the date and time, and the indicator applets is, they do not change at all. And pretty much the same problem on the bottom panel.
I tried Gnome color changer but only works for the texts and the drop down menus. I use Gnome classic (hated Unity). My goal is to make ALL of the panel background black.
I don't know much about scripting and so despite my best efforts i can't seem to get my script right and I was wondering how to do the following:at startup set the background color to a certain hex valueover time cycle through the entire range of possible values from (0x000000 to 0xFFFFFF)do this slowly, not abruptlystart the script every time I loginI know I need to use gconftool-2 -t str --set /desktop/gnome/background/primary_color "#$COLOR"where COLOR is a hex value variablebut really beyond that the specifics of how to time the updating of the hex value or whether a variable can be a hex value at all (if not how to work around that).
would anyone know how to change the widget plotter background color? I used to be able to do it in 9.10 by doing a right click/properties/advanced. In Lucid, I no longer see that advanced tab so I have no idea how to change that widget gray color? has this functionality moved somewhere else?? I looked all over the place in System Settings but I can't find anything.
I must have accidentally hit something and as a result the panel at the bottom with the KDE menu and so on is gone. I can recreate widgets and panels but not as the default menu bar at the bottom of the screen. So, now everytime I push something in the background, I have no way to recover it. How do I restore the original default menu bar/panel?
I am using export in 'Inkscape' to convert an SVG file to PNG. As I am using a transparent background, the colour of background is automatically set to yellow. I want to change this default colour to white. How can I do this?
I'm using the Divergence theme, and I'm loving the transparent top panel. However, the font is dark, so I can't see anything! How can I change the font so it's white, but without changing other system fonts?
I am wondering if it would be possible to change the top and bottom panels in gnome to black but leave the panels in apps, like the ones which all my Firefox buttons and file, edit and view etc menus rest upon shown below, grey as they are now?

I found an old thread from 2005 on how to change the font color on the gnome-panel. It worked for all applets on the panel except for the notification area and me-menu where the font remains dark.
How can i force the font to a light color on these two applets?
Also as i used the "clarlooks" theme for controls the status indicator is duplicated:
There is one instance in the me-menu and another in the notification area. How can i remove either? I find that the gnome-panel is a real hassle since 10.04. Not only it is not logically constructed, but it is inconsistent and not customisation friendly.
I've installed Fedora 13 from DVD and selected some extra features (php, mySQL). After the installation and user creation, I rebooted and logged in - clean clean desktop. No menu, no panel nothing. But I can run some commands (like firefox) from ALT+F2. It looks as if the commands works fine, but no menu.
I've re-installed my whole system.... same thing after logging in. I can see the bottom panel before log in.
Whatever I should do, I can only through command line as I'm able (from ALT+F2) to open a terminal. I suspect my resolution or something.
I'm working from a Acer laptop who's monitor is broken, connected a Samsung SyncMaster 943nwx to it. Its a 17" wide monitor.
I am using the screen app, and have set bce to on, and issued the following commands to set my background and foreground color: tput setab 4; clear; tput setaf 7; clear;
This temporarily sets everything properly on my screen. However, when I issue any commands that change or set their own background color (for example, when I issue an "ls" command with colorized output), the background color gets lost for any new output and I have to reissue the commands listed above in order to retrieve my background color.Ideally I'd like to keep my background color when issuing these commands, as it serves as a good way to remind me of what environment I am currently issuing commands in.
I am just wondering if anyone else is running into this weird behavior on KDE 4.6. It's on an openSUSE 11.4 installation, 64 bit, on a laptop with 2 monitors. Normally, I have the following desktop/wallpaper/icon combo:Then, when I accidentally click my mouse on the bottom of my panel, I get this very ugly desktop for some reason:Also, when I then right-click in the desktop area to change back the wallpaper, the "Change Desktop Background" option does not work. This only affects the current desktop I am working on, so I end up just moving all my work to a new desktop, but it's awfully annoying. I don't even know where the wallpaper comes from - it's not one of the options in my wallpaper settings
I was working just find and the "Computer" GUI that is located on the panel that lets you have access to all CPU options went missing.. I understand I can hit F2 and get them listed but I need it back on my panel strip at the bottom of the desktop!
get rid of the bottom panel in Opensuse 11.2 and just use a dock with applets. However, if I remove the bottom panel, the little icon that allows me to connect to wireless will go with it, right? And it wouldn't do me much good to get rid of that, because then I can't connect to the Internet...So, is there a wireless connection applet for the dock? I didn't see one anywhere. I can install the file manager app, but could I access it from there on the dock? I just want to make sure I can still connect to the Internet without the bottom panel.
While screwing around with my settings trying to get 11.3 setup the way I wanted it, I accidentally removed the portion of the bottom panel which displayed the titles for all the current open windows....and I can't for the life of me figure out how to get it back.Can anyone tell me how to add it again? I'm sure its something incredible simple, but I haven't been able to find it
I am running openSUSE 11.3 on a Lenovo S10 netbook. I have the default panel that is installed with the Slab etc at the bottom of the screen set to autohide. However, it does not do this consistently. Sometimes I have to minimize and then maximize an app window to get it to hide again.
I have had this problem with all installations of Maverick Meerkat. Moving the default clock from the upper panel to the lower panel makes it bahave strangely. When clicked on, it now appears in the middle of the screen (sometimes even higher depending on resolution). This never happened prior to Maverick Meerkat.
My Suse 11.4 wired network is not displayed in the bottom panel inside of my networkmanager. I can connect to the internet It just shows a red box with a white x inside near my clock is there anyway to get this working?
I installed the webilder application to automatically change the wallpaper, preferences you've specified the directory where the images but I can not change the background. Does anyone know why not change?
