You wrote DEAFULT instead of DEFAULT in the whole patch.
yes, sorry for the typo :)
Moreover one could write
instead so that other components may change this default size, eg.
setting this parameter on the boot command line should work, which
is useful to perform tes
well, i previously hardcoded the GTK_FONT_DEFAULT_SIZE value inside the
localechooser script, but later i tought this should be a global
variable set at runtime by some other script that is run before
I think that a new script, provided by the rootskel-gtk package, should
be able to decide what's the best resolution the GTK frontend has to run
at (the GTK FE can be made able to take the window's width and height
from the external) in every situation.
Sven, for example, told me that the most part of PPC machines have only
a fixed resolution framebuffer (usually something a lot bigger than
800x600), thus the GTK frontend is actually displayed as a 800x600
postal stamp inside an almost empty blue DirectFB screen :(
Since a script that detects what kind of framebuffer we have and decide
if enabling or disabling DFB's HW acceleration accordingly already has
to be developed, then we could also check in the same script for the
FB's resolution, set a corresponding pair of GTK_FRONTEND_WIDTH and
GTK_FRONTEND_HEIGHT global variables and calucalate the most appropriate
value for GTK_FONT_DEFAULT_SIZE.
Since we want to provide an hight-contrast theme for visual impaired
people too, choosable at boot time via a special boot parameter,
the very same script could also be useful to set an higher
GTK_FONT_DEFAULT_SIZE than in the case the standard GTK theme is used.
