Re: Bold fonts problem in GTK2 and GTK3

idk whether lxappearance suppresses bold fonts in the config, but please see the CoC and replace the oversized images w/ thumbnails or links.
Also use "code" tags for console outputs.

On topic, is this an xy-problem? Do you actually want to use bold fonts (the theme seems to use them as indicator of active items) or are you unhappy w/ fotn rendering?

Re: Bold fonts problem in GTK2 and GTK3

What is ".gtk2rc"? Does gtk actually invoke that under LXDE?

Please clarify whether that's gtk2 or gtk3 ("pacman -Qs lxappearance") and then

strace lxappearance 2>&1 | grep open

to see what files are actually read.
