Changing Fonts In Fluxbox


Hi.

Linux Install: Slackware 10.1
Window Manager: Fluxbox

Having bit of trouble changing the fonts for the Menu's and the Toolbar. Dont post much because i can usually find the info im looking for but cant seem to at the moment.I dont really like the Courier style font thats set on this style so i want to change it. Iv been into /home/user/.fluxbox/styles and edited the style fonts from there but it doesnt seem to change them at all. I read another post that said something about /usr/local/share/fluxbox/styles but i dont seem to have the /fluxbox/styles part of that dir. So if anyone has any suggestions that may help, it would be much appreciated.


Thanks,
Colonel-1990.

On most system, global styles will be in /usr/share/fluxbox/styles. Did you restart the WM after changing the font in the text file? Is antialiasing turned on in the configuration menu? Post the section of the style file you edited if none of that worked and I'll check your syntax, it's different between non-Xft and Xft fonts.
