Re: guessing font width

If you aren't used to building from source, the easiest way on Debian is:

  apt-get source gnumeric
  apt-get build-dep gnumeric
  apt-get install fakeroot
  cd <gnumeric source directory>
  dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot
  cd ..
  dpkg -i gnumeric-x.y.z-blabla.deb

Thank you for help.  I built gnumeric from source until recently that
it failed to compiled under debian lenny.  I'm not sure if the problem
related to gtk (lenny use gtk 2.12.12-1~lenny1) or newer gnumeric
source or gcc. When linking it aborted with

/usr/lib/ undefined reference to `g_content_type_from_mime_type'
/usr/lib/ undefined reference to `g_dgettext'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

building from debian is not feasible because it automatically pull
tons of gnome files for installation.

Anyway I'll workaround by using fonts available in the ms-excel-util.c
file.  Thanks again.

The procedure I suggested will build the version Debian ships, using the same development
pacakages. With the changes you make to the source yourself, of course :-) If you're still
getting build problems, I guess it could be mixing up libraries you've built from tarballs
with stuff installed from packages.

I fully appreciate if you don't have time to do the test, but if you were able to check it,
we could include it in the source. You can remove the extra debian packages afterwards.
However, you do need the disk space for the build.
