Hi Carlos, On Tuesday, December 21, 2004, 1:56:40 PM, you wrote: CL> By other hand I am sorry but I know no other forums that could help us withCL> this matter but I am pretty sure this is not Linux problem as everybody saCL> ys otherwise I would have the same trouble with other programs each time I CL> had to install new applications to use at my Linux box and that's not what CL> happens. Every new app works fine with no need to change a single font. HowCL> come only REBOL/View has this trouble? Because all the other apps are compiled against the latest header files and libraries. They all have a huge load of dependencies (especially on Mandrake), while REBOL doesn't. So, if the guys that compile Mandrake (for e.g.) decide to tweak the font handling a bit for some reason, and this breaks REBOL, it won't mean this breaks the other apps too because they are going to be recompiled to account for that, and because 99% of them do not use X directly but rely on other libraries (QT and GTK are the most common example).
