How can I change panel font colour?

I have recently installed PL 3.2 after using PL 2.2 for a couple of years.

To my dismay I discovered there was no Configuration Editor 1.4.0 in the menu nor in the repos.

So I installed dconf Editor its place.

I followed the instructions from a Linux Mint forum: "Navigate to org/gnome/libgnomekbd/indicator
You should see a few keys, one of them named "foreground-color" which is hex (set #FFFFFF - for white color), and defaults to #000000 (black color)."

But when I follow these instructions, there is no value indicted on foreground-color and no option to alter them anyway. I re-opened dconf under root privileges but no change.

So, is dconf Editor broken? Or is it being blocked by another configuration? Is the another way to change panel font colour?

Any help / suggestions most appreciated.

Okay, my search went on and I found a way to change the font colour of main menus using gnome-colour-chooser available in PL3.2 repos. Here's a link to a short and pleasant Youtube video showing how to use it:

The font on the clock applet still remains black tho. I'm working on it :)
