This is the old SliTaz forum - Please use the main & Tcl/tk font size is too big
  • seawolfseawolf November 2009
    Hi --

    I'm using Xorg and it seems the fonts are to big by default.
    I have altered the sizes in OpenBox configuration but the majority of the applications using the Tcl/Tk toolkit, such as tazpkgbox, desktopbox, xterm etc., are not affected.

    Does anyone know how to change the font size in these apps?

    Are there font settings in Menu Preferences' Appearance GTK+ too?
  • seawolfseawolf November 2009
    That changes fonts in GTK apps, like pcmanfm (and thus desktop icons), geany etc., but not apps like tazpkgbox which are Tcl/Tk-based. Also, the taskbar font is of a larger size.

    As a sidenote, the xterm font is set in ~/.Xdefaults -- I'll put these bits & pieces on a wiki page if it's there.

    @seawolf: GUIboxes in Slitaz are not TCL/Tk based. They are GTK Dialog based. With GTK Theme change, you can change the look and feel of GUI boxes, e.g., see burnbox in this pic .

    You may also like to check your ~/.gtkrc and see if gtk-font-name="DejaVu Sans 11" is set.. Also you are using Xorg, so may like to check your xorg.conf file.

    My mistake, I don't know why I thought it was so! I changed my own GTK prefs but not root's so when I sudo'ed they were not using my prefs. XTerm's font size was restored by editing .Xdefaults though it still seems that X's default font is about three sizes too big. Living with it until I find a solution.
