Good to know, but does anyone have an idea why? I also had/have this
problem. What I tried was a recompilation of sawfish. The problem
changed, but not to the good. Now I can select any font I want, but
that's all what happens :-( Looking a little bit more in detail, I can
select all fonts, but not all are displayed correctly. For example, if
I would like to use Helvetica-Regular, I can choose it from the
selection box and what I see is Helvetica-Italic. It looks like, that I
can just choose the font family, but not the slant.

Could it be, that the problem is related to the font server. I think I
compiled gtk+-2.x when the configuration of my gentoo box contains the
flag for xft. At the moment I'm using the internal font-server of
XFree86 4.3.x.



Reality is for people who lack imagination.
