Re: Font selection panel

I looked more closely at the code you provided and here are some observations.

Give it a try. For GTK2 you can change a few things around to get it to

Yes in your code I need to set button2 as disabled initially - call
gtk_widget_set_sensitive( button2, false ); when the program starts.
Then when the user changes the font in any way (i.e. (s)he presses
arrow key anywhere),
the button becomes enabled.

IIUC, in GTK3 it may be possible with
signal, but if I read the docs correctly there is no equivalent for GTK+2.

Pass the selection or chooser with your apply button "clicked" signal and
you can apply the changes.

Yes, this part I understand.

I tried the following with Ubuntu 16.04 and GTK2.24.30 and it worked. Maybe
get a start at setting something up. I would recommend GTK3 over GTK2 but if
GTK2 is the needed library then program with it.

I don't see a deprecated warning for gtk_font_selection_set_font_name() when
I compile in GTK2.

That's weird - I definitely see the deprecation warning in the GTK+2 docs -
for the reference.

Thank you for the code and Happy New Year!!
