Mintmenu text color

Postby midknight on Fri Feb 22, 2008 12:13 pm

how do you give MintMenu a custom text color? My GTK theme makes the menu white-on-gray, which is very annoying, so I'm stuck using another theme
Thanks in advanced! :D

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

I was also wondering if the fonts used in Fedora could be used in Mint.
Are they available to be selected somewhere ?
They are very clear and crisp ...

Are you referring to Red Hat Liberation true type fonts? If so, you can install via Synaptic.

Wich version of mintMenu are you using?

In my version (3.1), one simply right clicks the menu button, select preferences, and tick or untick the "Use custom colors" option.
To find out what version you are using, right click the mintMenu button chose "About".
