Can't use Qlassik font
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:14 EST
Description of problem:
This is actually pretty weird. I was playing around with fonts under KDE and
decided to use Qlassik (http://www.dafont.com/qlassik.font) as my UI font. This
works fine with KDE -- however, Gnome apps like Firefox and Eclipse just used
the default sans-serif font, in the size I'd specified for Qlassik. Yes, I did
restart KDE multiple times and try changing configuration options: whether I say
"use KDE fonts" or "use this specific font", Qlassik won't work.
Weirder is, if I use Gnome's own font configuration tool, I am able to choose
I thought this might be because the fonts are *.otf instead of *.ttf, but I
converted them to .ttf and had the same problems.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Choose Qlassik as the KDE font
2. Tell gtk-qt-engine to use the KDE font
Gnome apps use a default sans-serif font in the correct size
Gnome apps use the specified font
odd indeed. Be aware, afaik, that freetype currently doesn't include full
support for otf yet.
I'd suggest trying submitting this upstream, as I doubt there's much we can do
