Re: Modifying gtk2 fonts <SOLVED>

The traditional way to set gtk2 fonts used to be: either from within
Gnome or by running gnome-settings-daemon.
But editing ~/.gtkrc-2.0 is indeed the easiest and most hassle-free way
when not using Gnome.

To set the default gtk2-font, add something like this:

   gtk-font-name = "Liberation Sans 11"

I also find this one useful:

   gtk-can-change-accels = 1

It allows you to create a keyboard shortcut by hovering the mouse
pointer over a menu item and pressing the desired key or key
combination. It works for GTK2 applications, such as the Claws Mail
that you're using.

These are two more examples I saw somewhere, though I did not try them

   gtk-theme-name = "AIR"
   gtk-icon-theme-name = "Tango"
