Comment 1 Havoc Pennington 2003-01-25 11:25:06 EST
Try running in en_US.ISO-8859-1
Comment 2 Christopher Stone 2003-01-25 14:54:32 EST
how do I do that?
Comment 3 Havoc Pennington 2003-01-25 15:02:40 EST
"LANG=en_US.ISO-8859-1 gnumeric"
Comment 4 Christopher Stone 2003-01-25 15:09:56 EST
This fixes the warnings, but does not fix the font ugliness.
Comment 5 Havoc Pennington 2003-01-25 15:13:03 EST
Are the menu/toolbar fonts ugly or just in the spreadsheet area?
Comment 6 Christopher Stone 2003-01-25 15:19:16 EST
just the spreadsheet area.
Comment 7 Havoc Pennington 2003-02-03 17:37:28 EST
Owen says "gnumeric fonts are so deeply hosed in 1.0.x that there is no chance
of fixage until we move to the GTK 2 based gnumeric"

the problem here is apparently selecting the nearest thing to helvetica in our 
default font (nimbus), and nimbus is ugly. In any case, gtk 2 gnumeric will fix.
