Is it possible somehow to change the colors of the top panel in gnome shell so that it looks similar to gnome's classic mode top panel?

Actually I like the default gnome shell behavior (with some of the classic extensions enabled) better than the actual classic mode but light gray seems but better than black.

thanks for referring to themes again, I found "eOS Gnome-Shell" which looks nice enough for me. Now if only Nautilus would get type-ahead find again, I'd be happy with gnome 3.

Easiest way would be to use a different theme. Alternatively, you can change the color by editing the gnome-shell.css file.

I writing from memory here - I think you would need to edit the color under the properties of panel in that file.

Beware that updates to GNOME Shell may replace that file, so you’ll need to repeat the change occasionally.
