Aha, the epic never-ending linux font dilemma. One of these days it
will be "easy".
These days I force the X server DPI to 96 (startx -- -dpi 96), even
though one monitor I use has a native DPI closer to 86. I use Guido's
Font Configuration app (despite being a little broken) to set the
"Application font" and DPI for GTK2 apps. This is fantabulous but one
little problem with setting the Application font is that it's, well,
global. And I knew this so don't flame me yet. :)
This issue is one of cosmetics. I want to be able to change the font
that ROX-Filer uses but in order for it to be pretty -- specifically in
the "extra details" view -- it has to be a monospace font (otherwise
stuff isn't lined up and it's hard on the eyeballs). Alas, monospace
fonts look pretty freakin' ugly ("fugly") everywhere else (gaim,
gkrellm, gvim, firefox, any gtk2 app for that matter).
As far as I can see, the Filer can set a custom font for the pinboard
and nothing else. ?:-/ Could we add a feature in the future to specify
the font that Filer windows use? Or maybe there's some way to do it via
a GTK rc file?
