Description Pedro Miguel Marques Morais 2001-09-25 14:28:08 UTC
Description of Problem:

gnome-terminal font selection dialog does not work, i.e, the font change
does not take effect

How Reproducible:

on start, prints the following on the console:
-----------------cut here-------------------
Gdk-WARNING **: Missing charsets in FontSet creation
Gdk-WARNING **:     ISO8859-1
--------------cut here-------------------------

LANG was declare -x LANG="pt_PT.ISO-8859-1"  but it occurs after changing
to C.

You're probably choosing a font with the wrong encoding. If you uncheck "enable
multibyte support" it will let you choose a font with an encoding that doesn't
match the locale. 

I don't want to fix this in GNOME 1.x, except possibly to improve the error
message GTK prints when this happens since it's reported so often.
 Ideally GTK would print "font encoding is foo but locale encoding is bar,
unable to load font" or something like that. I don't know if GTK has enough info
to do that.

gtk+-1.2.10-13 (now building) has improved warnings.
