Gnome 3.x Change Panel

To change color of gnome 3.x panel

$ vi /usr/share/gnome-shell/theme/gnome-shell.css

search for

/* Panel */

#panel {
background-color: black;
font-weight: bold;
height: 1.86em;

I changed

background-color: grey;

But I’m sure you could also try a

border-image: url("border.png");

and play with opacity .

save the file reload the gnome3 desktop by hitting


then enter
