#10 tkCVS: Underline font not working.


I've been trying to get rid of the following warning that is printed to the console upon starting tkCVS...
"Underline font not working. Trying Nimbus Sans L -12 bold"
(It also is printed at various times during use.)

Am I missing a font that it expects?
tkCVS Version: 8.2 [tkcvs-8.2-1.fc10]
Platform: Linux (Fedora-10 on x86_64)

    It's because you're using Tk 8.5, and some versions of Tk 8.5 on some platforms (maybe all versions on Linux?) have font issues like that. I'm afraid there's no way to get rid of the warning, without going into the code and commenting it out. (It's in tkcvs.tcl) I suppose if the font problem is going to be there forever I'll have to just get rid of the warning. I really hate the font decisions that were made in Tk8.5 for X11 though.

    Thank you for your very quick response and explanation. Since it is more of an annoyance and does not seem to affect any functionality I will just continue to ignore it. I'll leave this to your discretion as to whether this should be reported as a bug.

    This problem goes away in Tk8.5.8
