Good evening everyone.
I have a panel in XFCE that has a strange colours' combination, as you can see in this picture. I would like to have a darker colour in the font of the panel. Besides, when I hover with the mouse on one of the windows' buttons, it becomes completely white, as shown here.

Currently, I have Arc as theme for both the window manager and the system style, but I am not able to find out the correct variable to edit in order to change the panel scheme and behaviour. I assume I need to change something in /usr/share/themes/Arc/gtk-2.0 and gtk-3.0.

You can add a new style to your ~ / .gtkrc-2.0 (if it does not exist, simply create it) and try

Code:
style "panel"
{
  bg[NORMAL] = "#ff0000"
}

widget_class "*Panel*"      style "panel"
widget "*Panel*"            style "panel"
class "*Panel*"             style "panel"

or
Code:
style "panel"
{
  bg[NORMAL] = "#181818"
  fg[NORMAL] = "#FFFFFF"
  }

widget_class "*Panel*"      style "panel"
widget "*Panel*"            style "panel"
class "*Panel*"             style "panel"
