How to Change Color of Plasma Panel and other Widgets

Hi all,

I have been working on re theming Plasma for myself, and hopefully
eventually for others and have successfully gotten a coherent color scheme
working with the exception of Plasma's Panel/Taskbar and associated widgets.

While the highlight colors seem to be affected by my desktop theme colors,
the background of the panel and associated widgets remains the same and I
can't seem to find a way to change it.

Is there some specific configuration file somewhere which deals with the
background color of the panel that is separate from the KDE Application
color scheme (modified in the KDE plasma system settings under colors) as
well as the desktop theme color scheme (modified in the
/usr/share/plasma/desktoptheme/$themeName/colors file)?

Thank you,


Peter Devyatkin
