Customize appearance of Applications Menu

I am very interested in theme creation. I have found themes that I like and am interested in tweaking them and/or using them as the basis for new themes. One thing I have not found is how to modify the appearance of the Applications Menu. Specifically I would be looking for ways to modify the width of the menu, change its background color independent of the theme settings, and things such as this. Where would I find these settings?

I am using Xubuntu 12.04.

Thank you,
Greg

Re: Customize appearance of Applications Menu

You can set menu colours by adding the following to ~/.gtkrc-2.0

style"gtk-theme-config-menu"{
bg[NORMAL]="#cfc8c8"
bg[ACTIVE]="#cfc8c8"
bg[INSENSITIVE]="#cfc8c8"
fg[NORMAL]="#990000"
fg[INSENSITIVE]=mix(0.5,"#cc0022","#cfc8c8")
}
widget_class"*<GtkMenu>*"style"gtk-theme-config-menu"

That gives you red text on grey background, change the colours to your preference. Not sure about the width though.
