Description Henrik Brix Andersen 2002-10-07 06:42:45 EDT
Description of Problem:
When setting the default font using 'sawfish-ui' the font setting dialog 
uses a different font notation than what sawfish exspects.

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

How Reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run command 'sawfish-ui'
2. Select the "Appearence" tab (default)
3. Browse for a randomly choosen default font and click ok

Actual Results:
Sawfish can't find the font and defaults to some ugly scriptish font

Expected Results:
Sawfish should use the newly selected font for window titles

Additional Information:
Solution: enter the font manually, either in the "Default Font" text entry 
in sawfish-ui or by adding a line to ~/.sawfish/custom

Example of line added to ~/.sawfish/custom:
(custom-set-typed-variable (quote default-font) (quote "-b&h-luxi 
sans-bold-r-normal-*-*-120-*-*-p-*-iso8859-1") (quote font))
Comment 1 Felipe Alfaro Solana 2002-12-27 14:00:33 EST
For "sawfish-1.2-2" in Phoebe, this is the line I had to add to "custom":

(custom-set-typed-variable (quote default-font) (quote ("xlfd" .
"-adobe-helvetica-medium-r-normal-*-*-120-*-*-p-*-iso8859-1")) (quote font))

Note the "xlfd" and the "dot" before the actual font name.
