GTK 1.2 font problems
The help in gnucash shows in a small, crummy font. It's basically
unreadable. Nothing I do seems to change it. It looks OK in yelp.
I ordinarily run KDE on a testing system (though I tried Gnome too).
Judging by the dependencies, gnucash is a gtk 1.2 application. I
assume yelp is good because it is a Gnome 2 (gtk 2?) app.
After reading the newsgroups, here's what I've tried:
1. In KDE, disable the setting (under color!) for controls appearance
of non-KDE apps.
2. Tried Gnome 2.
3. Created .gtkrc.mine in my home directory with
# Create by RB for gtk 1.2 in effort to make gnucash help look decent
This file is included by .gtkrc-1.2-gnome2
4. Created .gtkrc-1.2, same as above. (Nothing suggested this, but I
thought .gtkrc-1.2-gnome2 might only apply under gnome 2).
5. Added to .gtkrc-2.0
gtk-font-name = "Sans 12"
You can only run one xsettings manager at a time; exiting
I did not log out before each attempt, though after doing these I did
start a Gnome session in a second virtual terminal.
Any other ideas?
P.S. The previous operations did change my emacs fonts!
