Description Marc Deslauriers 2002-08-06 21:46:53 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020804

Description of problem:
When opening the gnome-font-properties program, the font listed as "Window title
font" is clearly wrong (see attached screenshot). The preview looks like size
14, while indicating 12, while the actual font used in the window titles is
looks like 10.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Log in for the first time
2.Select Preferences/Font from the Gnome menu

Actual Results:  "Window title font" doesn't match what is currently in use

Expected Results:  I expect it to match.

Looks likely to be a gnome-font-picker bug, perhaps. unless control-center does
something really weird.

Comment 3 Havoc Pennington 2002-08-15 22:14:01 UTC
metacity- should fix this problem (you may have to power-cycle gconfd
with gconftool-2 --shutdown after installing the package to see the fix)

Comment 4 Jay Turner 2002-08-22 12:55:06 UTC
OK, I installed metacity- and the display now appears correct, but I
can no longer click on the window title font and change its properties.  That

Comment 5 Jay Turner 2002-08-22 12:58:32 UTC
As an added side-note, metacity- works as would be expected.

Comment 6 Owen Taylor 2002-08-22 14:23:12 UTC
What do you mean by "can't click on it" --  is it displayed
insenstive (grayed out)?

Comment 7 Havoc Pennington 2002-08-27 21:08:55 UTC
I can change my window title font fine with current packages - it isn't disabled.

If someone else can still reproduce it being disabled, please reopen, and maybe
add more info about your setup (e.g. does it happen with a newly-created test
user account or only with old users, etc.)

Comment 8 Jay Turner 2002-08-28 16:11:35 UTC
I'm not seeing this with newly installed machines (from the latest trees) so
closing this out.
