Ali,

Good morning, sorry to hear that the auto hide failed to stick, not sure
what that's all about.

I had the same problem concerning the applet font colors.  I did some
googling and came up with this:

create a file called .gtkrc-2.0 in your home directory that contains:

style "panel_color"
{
   fg[NORMAL] = "#b4ff7b"
}
widget "*PanelWidget*" style "panel_color"
widget "*PanelApplet*clock*" style "panel_color"


I could not find the specific resources, thus the wild cards.  The color
definition is slightly green of yellow.  I used one of the color-picker
apps to get the value.

You'll need to log off and back on to see the changes.

Bob...
