weird fonts in audacious [SOLVED]

Recently I updated my system and am having a minor problem with audacious:

http://i283.photobucket.com/albums/kk29 … acious.png



i can fix it by changing the default theme in xfce and then changing it back, but the font is screwed up again when i close/reopen audacious.  here's some commandline messages i get when i run audacious:

$ audacious 
(bootstrap.c:60) [mowgli_init]: mowgli_init() is a deprecated function, provided only for backwards compatibility with Mowgli-1.  You should remove it if you no longer support using Mowgli-1.
Failed to load plugin (/usr/lib/audacious/Container/cue.so): libcue.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

(audacious:3981): Gtk-WARNING **: Theme parsing error: gtk.css:102:18: Not using units is deprecated. Assuming 'px'.

(audacious:3981): Gtk-WARNING **: Theme parsing error: gtk.css:102:20: Not using units is deprecated. Assuming 'px'.

so far i've only seen this problem with Audacious.  I use Xfce and the fonts/theme are fine in all my other apps.  and it seems audacious depends on libguess which depends on libmowgli.

i made the picture a link, is this satisfactory?

yes; that is what I did the first time...

Re: weird fonts in audacious [SOLVED]

if you are on nvidia it will prolly help to downgrade xorg-server, see https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/32612

The mod made the picture a link because it was too big.  Did you not read the link he posted explaining why it was done?

Re: weird fonts in audacious [SOLVED]

@cleanrock, i am using nvidia, but it seems like i'd be having issues with X in general if that were the problem, no?


@wonderwoofy, he did not post a link, he mentioned a topic to view, but i went ahead and made the pic a link.

Re: weird fonts in audacious [SOLVED]

I think its worth to try downgrading xorg-server to -3, i think everybody on nvidia have font rendering issues with -4.

Aha! I totally experienced this bug too. For what it's worth, I'm using the open source radeon driver.

So, I noticed as you did that changing the GTK3 theme fixes the problem. I decided on a different, slightly more drastic solution: I uninstalled all GTK3 applications. I could have installed the "audacious-gtk2" package from the AUR, but I decided instead to switch to the Parole Media Player instead.

Re: weird fonts in audacious [SOLVED]

I downgraded xorg-server and xorg-server-common, but no luck.  I then tried downgrading pixman too, but still the same thing.  I tried reinstalling some of the gtk themes but that didn''t help either.  Not sure what to do except try the gtk2 audacious or another music player like drcouzelis mentioned.

Re: weird fonts in audacious [SOLVED]

I just remembered another thing: try audacious with a clean config, either by creating a new user or moving your dot config files. I this it made audacious look correct, if only for the first time starting it. I got the idea because I only saw the bug in audacious. It also seems to have something to do with having an existing playlist.

I don't know if it's been reported upstream. I think it's a tricky bug to search for. sad

Re: weird fonts in audacious [SOLVED]

It's a bug in GTK+ 3.6.  I submitted a patch for it weeks ago but the GTK+ developers are (as usual) ignoring it.

Re: weird fonts in audacious [SOLVED]

Your GTK theme is not compatible with version 3.6.
Try to use a recent version of Greybird for example.

Downgrade gtk3 to 3.4.3-1 and it will be fixed.

No, it's not the theme, it's a bug in GtkTreeView.  Read the bugzilla entry.

This worked for me, marking as solved but will keep an eye on the bug report for GTK 3.6!  Thanks all!
