Can't change font in gedit
Last modified: 2011-03-26 20:34:56 EDT
Description of problem:
I recently upgraded my system from Fedora 14 to Fedora 15 alpha using Anaconda. After the upgrade, gedit is not using a monospaced font, it seems to be using whatever the default GNOME font is.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I can only reproduce this on my local machine that's been upgraded from Fedora 14. I've tried the Alpha live desktop image in qemu and booted natively, they work fine.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upgrade an F14 install to F15
2. Open gedit and edit a file
3. Try changing the font in Edit->Preferences->Fonts & Colors
None of the font options in the Preferences result in a changed font, either in the preview window or in the editor. The font always stays at the default GNOME font.
gedit defaults to the default GNOME monospaced font ("Monospace 11"), which can be overridden from the preferences
I'm not sure if this is some kind of configuration error, or really a bug in gedit. Happy to provide any additional information.
Looks like this is fixed in the latest batch of updates to gtk and GNOME (not sure which specifically).

I ran an update, and the problem disappeared for me too. I guess I will close this bug since it seems like it's not an issue anymore.
