gkrellm uses gtk1, by any chance?
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2003-10-22 11:33:24 EDT
No, it uses gtk2. Hm.
Comment 4 Nakai 2003-10-23 03:12:40 EDT
gkrellm still has gtk 1.2 style XLFD setting dialog, so it is supposed to
using gdk_font_load/gdk_fontset_load code inside, and not well ported to

Comment 7 Warren Togami 2004-06-01 05:20:11 EDT
Please try gkrellm-2.2.0-1 from rawhide tomorrow.  It now uses pango
to render text, so this should theoretically be fixed.  CLOSE or
REOPEN after you have tested.
Comment 8 Nakai 2004-06-01 07:10:48 EDT
The upstream source code works for me.
date format is still wrong but this is another issue
Comment 9 Nakai 2004-06-01 11:47:12 EDT
Confirmed with gkrellm-2.2.0-1.
Thank you!
