Default System font on Linux

 [1/2] from: reichart::prolific::com at: 28-Nov-2001 13:21

Just convinced a friend of mine to start playing with Rebol. He is running it on Linux. Rebol comes up using a REALLY ugly font (don't know the name). How does one change the default font Rebol uses in Linux? Thanks. Reichart... [Reichart--Prolific--com] Be useful.

Hello Reichart, Although I'm not running on Linux I believe my little "quick-font-hack" function will help you ;) put this function in your user.r (watch out line breaks): -------------------snip--------------------------- set-default-font: func [ "sets default font for /View" font-blk [block! word!] "block of font attributes" ][ system/standard/face/font: make system/standard/face/font font-blk system/view/vid/vid-face/font: make system/view/vid/vid-face/font font-blk foreach [w s] system/view/vid/vid-styles [s/font: make s/font font-blk] ] -------------------snip------------------------------ then you can use for example: set-default-font [ name: "fixedsys" ;or your favorite font ] you can also put into the block any of these standard font parameters: [ name: "arial" style: none size: 12 color: 0.0.0 offset: 2x2 space: 0x0 align: 'center valign: 'center shadow: none ] (for more information about these parameters see /View docs) regards, Cyphre PS: Reichart,have you any news regarding the Rebol-job opportunity at Prolific? ;)
