Re: How to change fixed font in GNOME2?

A few weeks ago I sent out an email to this list, with the question:

> Please, how can I change the font and size of the fixed font?

To be more specific, I really needed to change the fixed font used by
GNOME 1 applications such as Evolution.  I could barely read the one
they were using.

No one ever gave me any advice.  I did solve the problem, in a very
hackish way.

I installed the old GNOME 1 control panel!  Then I changed the fonts in
the "HTML Viewer" applet.  Then I re-installed the current GNOME control

I got a copy of the old gnomecc .deb file from /var/cache/apt/archives,
and then installed it using:

dpkg --force-conflicts -i gnome-control-center_1%3a1.4.0.5-6_i386.deb

Then when I was done I simply updated all my packages, as usual, and the
control center updated automatically.

I look forward to the day when the GNOME 2 control panel can be used to
change the fixed font.  Until then, I'm keeping a copy of the old .deb
file tucked away, in case I need to do this hack again.
