Though I've been reading some threads on gvim config, and read some information on http://www.vim.org/,
I still need to know where I can find the requested name of the Courier10Pitch, something that looks like this:
-urw-urw palladio l-regular-r-normal-*-*-140-*-*-p-*-iso8859-2
(This example taken from the gvimrc file doesn't work, the palladio font isn't recognized!).
As you know you have to set your favourite font each time you launch gvim if you can't edit the gvimrc file
With gtkfonselect I've been able to find the names of many fonts but not that one. Many fonts don't work in gvim but courier10Pitch is fine.
By the way, your gvimrc file may not be in your /home dir; mine is in /etc/vim/ and has a link in /usr/share/vim .
Your help would much appreciated!
