edit the colour of the font of a part of the panel

Hello,

When trying out different GTK2/3/4 themes, I noticed that the themes influence the look of my vertical panel.

I would like, that the part that is of interest looks like this (Blackbird theme):

But with the theme I want (Unity_Leopard) it looks like this:

Here are the plugins you see on the "panel part" from above:

What I want is this:
I would like to have the panel look from Blackbird, but with the theme Unity_Leopard.
-> I want to have a white font instead of the black font because it is better visible on the red background. And I prefer the small indicators.

What do I have to configure? In which file?

Would appreciate some help.

Thank you.

Re: edit the colour of the font of a part of the panel

Try adding the following to ~/.config/gtk-3.0/gtk.css:

.xfce4-panel label {color: white}
.xfce4-panel window label {color: black}
.xfce4-panel progressbar trough, .xfce4-panel progressbar trough progress {min-height: 0}

...adjust the "min-height" value to suit.

Note that this is a hammer approach and will affect all plugins on the panel. This can be adapted to affect only certain plugins if required.
