Question Can't see Helvetica font in GTK+ apps. (slack9)


having a different slack font problem.
some apps dont see helvetica (like mozilla)
but others do. Like Konqueror.

Seems to be that kde(qt) apps are seeing the font. But Gnome(GTK) arent. Tested with gimp-1.3, gaim, mozilla, kate and konq.

Think it maybe something to do with Anti-aliasing. But can't figure it out. Anyway care to be of any help? ;-)

Cheers, Aaron

It's not just mozilla, but all GTK2 apps (GTK1, like xmms, is fine).

you can turn off antialiasing for all gtk+2 applications by editing /etc/profile.d/gtk+.sh: there s a line GDK_USE_XFT=1. change it to GDK_USE_XFT=0 and log out and in, then you have helvetica back!
