does anyone know how I can adjust the default font/size of gtk+ compiled programs like firefox without running gnome or xfce? The reason I ask is, everytime I try to run some WM like iceWM (or fluxbox or what have you), when I open a gnome terminal or firefox, the font size is really small (like a 9 or 10). Even my GDM login screen has this issue - small font where I type in my username and password. I searched all through gconf but I can't find the right setting (I have changed the font settings that I could see but no change)
you can try to put this in ~/.gtkrc-2.0
gtk-font-name = "bitstream bold 12"
arch + gentoo + initng + python = enlisy
thank you xerxes2 and phrakture. I will try both suggestions and see where it gets me.
