I have Debian Wheezy with XFCE 4.8 installed and I'm stuck with file menu bar (top menu bar present on almost all the windows).

Arrows are pointing on the window area I'm talking about

I've tried Appearance, Windows manager and Compiz config, but no matter what I change or tweak that file menu bar remains the same: gray backgroud + a cheezy italic font.

P.S. I've also tried to modify theme files (Menubar section), but I haven't figured out what to put instead of the default value.

Help me please!

I have this problem too in DreamLinux 5. I edited menu.rc in /home/me/.themes/Go-Touch/gtk-2.0/Menu, where Go-Touch is theme I use. I found this code: font_name = "Bold Italic 9" then changed it to: font_name = "9" After reboot, the menu bar is neither bold or italic, just size 9. Hopefully you'll solve it too.
