sawfish-ui broken font settin
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:47:16 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):
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
Sawfish can't find the font and defaults to some ugly scriptish font
Sawfish should use the newly selected font for window titles
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))
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.
