Gnome Color Chooser

less than 1 minute read

One of the things I love about Linux is the fact that you can make whatever changes you want to the operating system.  One of the things that I change is the color of the text on the panel where you can see all of your applications.  To make this change you first must install the gnome-color-chooser application by typing the following command:

sudo apt-get install gnome-color-chooser

Once it’s installed, you can run it by typing this command:


When you have the application open, you’ll have to click on the ‘Panel’ tab, check the box next to the Foreground item for the ‘normal’ setting and change the value to #ffffff (white). Save the changes and you’ll now have the color of the text on the panel to be white!
