FONTS deformed, not like in gtk

i've discovered this issue or bug or i don't know woh to call it, yesterday, when i've changed all the fonts of my sistem back to MONOSPACE 6 ... the fonts inside all the windows, in the gtk theme, are well displayed and corresponds to the sample.... but the fonts in the openbox menu, and the windows titles appears... different, a little bit deformed, a little bit shorter and more fatted than how it should be.....
so i've tried another font, and another...and for all the same thing...
now i'm wondering if anyone have noticed it... if it's a normal thing and in can be avoided
it annoys me... really! hmm

Re: FONTS deformed, not like in gtk

Sounds like it's replaced the font face, but not actually re-rendered to account for the font size. Does it go away if you restart Openbox?

Re: FONTS deformed, not like in gtk

not the font face i think because i've setted the same font in both the gtk apps and in obpenbox (that displays only the main menu and the tiles of the windows).

it looks like having 2 different types of fonts... even if i've checked all the options like bold, italic, etc...

the reboot doesn't heal

it's ok to u? is this a problem only mine?

Re: FONTS deformed, not like in gtk

Do other fonts or bigger sizes work fine on the Openbox menu? Try changing it and then change back to monospace 6.

Hello azanutta smile

You could try modifying your .fonts.conf file to see it makes a difference. Drop the following contents into the file in your home directory, you may have to create the file first, and then restart Openbox.

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE fontconfig SYSTEM "fonts.dtd">
<fontconfig>
 <match target="font" >
  <edit mode="assign" name="hinting" >
   <bool>true</bool>
  </edit>
 </match>
 <match target="font" >
  <edit mode="assign" name="hintstyle" >
   <const>hintfull</const>
  </edit>
 </match>
 <match target="font" >
  <edit mode="assign" name="rgba" >
   <const>rgb</const>
  </edit>
 </match>
 <match target="font" >
  <edit mode="assign" name="antialias" >
   <bool>true</bool>
  </edit>
 </match>
</fontconfig>

Hope this helps.

<?xml version="1.0"?>

 <match target="font" >
  <edit mode="assign" name="hinting"><bool>true</bool></edit>
  <edit mode="assign" name="hintstyle"><const>hintfull</const></edit>

Re: FONTS deformed, not like in gtk

corenominal : anything I can do to help further with lxpanel, I'm happy to do. I'm using the packages on my own machine, and all seems to be ok. Assuming I've actually made something useful for the community here/learned just enough to be dangerous, I'd be interested in joining the Crunchbangers Launchpad team, with a definite interest in 64-bit issues and helping to solve these sorts of issues. The more I am learning about Debian packaging and compiling from source, the more interested I get in both subjects.
