Post How to change color of the Bottom panel to Brown vs Black?
I've searched and I don't find any settings for changing the bottom Panel Color from Black to a Lighter Brown.

Where is that information located?

Thanks.

Larry.

You might want to read the Users Manual...

All that sort of stuff is in System Settings, for which there is a big icon in the panel.

I know of no direct way to change only panel color. The panel color will change when different desktop themes are used. But so will the other desktop elements, menus, dialogues, etc. There may be a way to do this by editing a text configuration file, or editing the theme file, but that is beyond my knowledge.

I did find this:

You can mix and match elements from your installed themes in the Settings, so all that needs to be done is find a theme with a brown panel...

How? I see where you can change themes but where can you pick theme elements in System Settings?

This is what I was thinking of:

Workspace Appearance > Desktop Theme > Details

Thanks. I did not see the Details tab. Early senility? Not so early.
