Description of problem:
When running gnome, the font used in menus and applications (i.e.
gnome-terminal) is not the font which I have selected in the Preferences->Font
selector tool. However, upon loading the font-selector tool, the font
immediately changes to the correct one, before I make any selections or
mouse-clicks in the font-selector. After that, the behaviour is as it should be.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start gnome
2. Start an app (i.e. gnome-terminal)
3. Select Start-here->Preferences->Font
4. Font in app started in #2 will change to preferred font.
Actual Results: See steps to reproduce
Expected Results: The preferred font should be loaded when gnome starts!
Not sure if gnome-core was the correct app to place this bug in...
is gnome-settings-daemon in your session? When you log in for the first time,
can you start a terminal and do something like:
ps auxwww|grep gnome-settings-daemon
and see what comes up?
Ok, my bad. I was starting gnome-panel directly instead of running
gnome-session. I'm running things remotely on an X-server on a windoze machine,
so I'm not using GDM or the like to manage everything for me. Do you know if
there is a way to tell gnome-session to not try to start the windom manager? It
keeps trying to, and then complaining that my display already has a window
not sure if there's a way. It does it's best to protect against such problems,
and is overly cautious as a result. You can pretty safely ignore the warning
