Shiki-colors 4.6 does not support lxpanel properly: the panel background is 
properly set, but the buttons are white with white text inside, making it 
completely unreadable. 
I tried fiddling around with the panel.rc, but I've never touched gtk themes 
before, so I didn't get anywhere. I was basing myself on Aurora Mix 
(http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Aurora+Mix?content=108418) that has 
a similar look and correctly displays dark buttons in lxpanel, but it may 
use particular features of the aurora engine for that one.

I saw there were discussions about adding openbox themes to shiki-colors. If 
they get integrated and the lxpanel appearance is fixed, gnome-colors will 
look amazing in LXDE!

Hi,

the problem with lxpanel (and fbpanel, on which lxpanel is based on) is, that 
it's
not that easy to find out their widget class. I fiddled myself a little bit with
fbpanel first, and found a solution, which in the end worked out for lxpanel as 
well.
Edit the panel.rc file in your favorite Shiki theme, and append the following 
to it:

fbpanel stuff

style "fbpanel-tclock" = "theme-panel" {
font_name="Droid Sans"
}

widget ".tclock." style "theme-panel"
#widget ".tclock." style "fbpanel-tclock"
widget ".taskbar." style "theme-panel"
widget_class "GtkBgbox" style "theme-panel"

With this my lxpanel looks exactly like the gnome-panel in those screenshots.

Ok, the wiki commands for code are not supported in the issue tracker. So here 
is the
exact insert once again:

# fbpanel stuff

style "fbpanel-tclock" = "theme-panel" {
     font_name="Droid Sans"
}

widget "*.tclock.*" style "theme-panel"
widget "*.taskbar.*" style "theme-panel"
widget_class "*GtkBgbox*" style "theme-panel"

Thanks!

I had also found a fix of my own in the end. I added this:

widget "*Panel*" style "theme-panel"

Both work well.
