It will make the foreground the "panel_color" in all applets.

Hey mates,

I tried the method you suggested and it works fine with everything except with the custom menu (the one with applications, places and desktop menus) applet. It still retains its black font colour, even though all other applets appear with the colour i picked

how can i fix that?
