fonts in fluxbox

I'm using fluxbox 0.1.14 and Slackware 9.1

I've installed the artwiz (de) fonts and they seem to work nicely: "aterm -fn" e.g. brings up the right font.

I've done an entry in my style (serbian frost):
I restarted X but it's still the old font.

What have I done wrong?

Maybe you can try the x utility xfontsel to give you the right name for this font

Edit : you don't need to restart x to apply change to style, just use "Reload config" from the main fluxbox root menu

i running flux and i just edited the menu:
  [exec] (aterm) {aterm -fg green -bg black -fn <fontnamehere>}
that way everytime i want aterm at a certain font or transparency, itll always be there when i right click for the menu. hope this helps.

edit: the menu file should be in ~/.fluxbox/
