accessability for logjam...? [Feb. 2nd, 2003|05:53 am]

i must say that i kinda like the new 4.0.0 logjam "feel".. but there's jsut one thing that i miss... the ability to change your "view font", for instance, you'd like to view the post windows etc with a larger font then X has standard. now, i myself have bad eyesight 'n i really cant read 8pt standard X size... i know its a problem for me, i changed everything as far as i could in X itself, but logjam .. hmm, well i dont know how to adapt that...

it would be wonderfull if you could specify lets say 13px font size for "viewing" the text as you write it in the journal posting. but that would also go for moods, detected music etc etc etc... 1 click enlarges it all if you get what i mean... i know that the current builder of logjam is very busy but it would do me and others who cannot see right and use linux with X and logjam a huge favour by adapting this gr8 programm for us :)

but thats my 2 euroct..

keep up the good work! :)

I know this would only be a temporary fix, as it is quite unweildy, but if you ever really need to see something better you can just do a ctrl+alt+(+ on the numberpad) and it will zoom in. Same goes for the -. Useful if a game crashes and your res is smashed.

Hi Rew,

I have tried your suggestion but i think it doesn't work for me atm cuz i only have 1 resolution setup under X, cuz it does nothing for me at all :(

Will tinker around with it later today 'n see if I can get that to work. I read about that but just haven't gotten round to fix it yet ...

Thnx for your reply though :)

LogJam's font is the same as the fonts used by every other GTK2 program. If you use GNOME2, you can change this font through the control panels. Otherwise, you can edit your .gtkrc-2.0 directly (and maybe read my page on GTK2 and fonts).

Let me know if you have any further questions. :)

Hi Evan,

Thanks for your reply, I did as you sayd, and I read your howto and dug myself into the font beautification howto, but still it doesn't accept it.. Allthough I must admit that my fonts now deffinately have improved (specially in mozilla).

At this momement I'm using Fluxbox as my wm and not gnome (I'm not sure if that is supposed to be installed for it to work or not) on a Gentoo Linux machine. (I dont have much space on my disks to I try to "travel" light :)

Is there any way that I can "diagnose" wich font GTK2 at this moment uses ?... maybe i should dig into the GTK2 stuff 'n have a poke there....

Evan: I found it :)

I recompiled some stuff over the weekend and suprisingly enough after a complete reboot of the system it worked.. not sure why I had to reboot though :( prolly because of some enviroment that didn't get setup allright. But it works :)

Damm, this fontsize is darn much better then 8px! yippie! :)
