File for styling the menu component?

Postby That Random Guy » Thu May 18, 2017 10:18 pm

I'm wondering if there's a specific file that handles the definition of style rules for the menu component of the LXPanel.

After snooping around, it's become apparent to me that the menu configuration uses XML.

From that stand point, and knowing that CSS can be applied, can I assume that there's some file being used to define the style properties of the menu?

I'm not referring to the button, but the menu which includes links and launchers as defined in category of interest.

There has to be a way for me to make the menu bigger. I've found ample documentation on how to add items to the menu, but I have yet to see guidelines on how one would go about configuring the styling of the menu itself.

Is what I'm asking even a thing as this point?

Thanks in advance.

the menu xml files define the content. not the style.
the style is gtk (gtk2 most likely for lxde).
you can adjust it in your current gtk theme, but i don't think you can adjust only the panel menu - it will have an effect on the rest of your desktop style.

Hypothetically, can there be some way to get styling for only the menu somehow?

sure.
you can fork lxpanel and add a menu styling section.
