Probleme de Fonts/Polices "sales"

Recommended Posts

J'ai plusieur application qui s'ouvrent avec des polices par defaut 'tres moches', elle ne sont pas 'lissées' et en plus elle sont mal dimentionnées ..

regardez dans ce grab, les polices de VCL par rapport aux reste des polices du systeme, c'est pas bô :zarb: ..


J'ai remarqué ca sur boa-constructor, et le prog de compte , gnucash je crois... Je pense que c'est les applis qui se servent des wxwidget, ou de GTK1... Mais autant GKT 2 se parametre tres bien, GTK 1 ?? les polices par defaut de wxwidget ? Ca reste un mistere ..

Vous avec des infos / astuces ???

Merci .. :roll:

After installing GnuCash (any of the current versions which still use GTK1), you may discover that the program is basically useless because of inappropriate (crazy! ugly! fuggly!) fonts. That's what happened to me.

Here's a solution.

First, select a decent font by running the xfontsel command. It brings up a truly horrid-looking klunker screen which, however, does let you make font choices and see what they will look like. (The interface must have been designed by Soviet-era engineers.)

ASFAIK, xfontsel doesn't affect gtk1 font useage, but it lets you see fonts

available for selection. Make your choices and write down the specification

line which was built as you made your selections of weight, size, etc.

In my case, my font choice added up to:


Now, you must manually add this specification to /etc/gtk/gtkrc.utf-8 which is

where GnuCash goes to decide its fonts (non-English users will need to poke around in the gtk directory for their brand).

$sudo gedit /etc/gtk/gtkrc.utf-8

My default file looked like:

style "default-text" {

fontset = "-*-ariale-medium-r-normal--*-100-*-*-*-*-iso10646-1,\



class "GtkWidget" style "default-text"

I edited the fontsel set to look like:

fontset = "-adobe-helvetica-medium-r-normal-*-14-100-100-100-p-76-iso8859-1,\



(This just inserted my preferred choice at the top of the default list with a comma forward slash after it.)

Voila! Gnucash becomes readable.

j'ai bon espoir je testerais ca au taff , mais la c'est deja le weekend pour moi :transpi: , je repasserais mettre ca a jour.
