    I entered it directly, using a text editor called from the terminal.

    This is getting pretty weird :-)

    Can you please copy/paste your "~/.gtkrc-2.0"?

    Here it is:
    Code:
    style "my_panel"
    {
    *font_name = "Arial 11"
    }
    
    widget "*slab-main-menu-window*" style "my_panel"
    I've just used a larger size to make the effect more obvious.

    Just to add: the file is located in /home/hgm/.gtkrc-2.0 (hgm is my local username). I created it because I couldn't find another, pre-existing .gtkrc-2.0 anywhere else.

    Two things:

    1) Line "font_name = Arial 11" should start with a "blank" space, not with
    an asterisk "*" (mmm, maybe a KNode glitch :-/).

    2) Do you have installed "Arial" font? If no, you should use a font you have
    installed in your system so you can see the changes.

    With the asterisk in front of the font_name gone, it finally worked! Well, not quite how I intended it though: I probably didn't make myself clear enough. When I said I wanted to change the Gnome panel font, I meant the font used for menu names ("Computer" in SUSE, "Applications/Places/System" in plain vanilla) and all the other things that appear in the panel (application windows, date and time, etc). I can change that with Appearance/Fonts/Applications but that affects more than just the panel font.
    Is that clearer now? Many thanks for your help, I'm sorry if I didn't say clearly enough what I was after. Of course, if you know the answer to THIS issue as well, that would be much appreciated. I would guess that's some other widget(s) to be styled?

    Yes, it is a bit more clear now.

    And yes, now that you already know how it goes, you can test some other
    things in your ~/.gtkrc-2.0, i.e.:

    ***
    style "my_panel"
    {
    font_name = "Arial 10"
    }

    widget "*slab-main-menu-window*" style "my_panel"
    widget "*PanelWidget*" style "my_panel"
    widget "*PanelApplet*" style "my_panel"
    ***

    And restart gnome-panel "killall gnome-panel" and check for the results.

    You can find more "tweaks" in Google. THT.

    Thanks, will try that tomorrow (too late in Sydney now). I've been doing a fair bit of googling about GTK etc. It's a steep learning curve...

    Thanks, will have a look. Just out of interest: I now find this thread duplicated, how's that possible? Wasn't me, for sure...
