Default Can't set valid fonts in NEdit (Fedora 8)

Hello all,


I've just installed Fedora 8 from scratch on a D810 laptop, then
migrated my personal files and config elements from my previous FC5
system.

Running NEdit shows unexpected fonts (and thus, size of window is way
too wide). If I try to edit NEdit's font settings, apparently there are
some fonts in the list, but they are invisible. Those invisible font
items in list seem sensitive, and if I click any one, I get an error:
"Invalid Font Specification".

Note: I'm running GNOME and apart from the "Look and Feel/Appearance"
font settings, I did not changed anything related to font settings
anywhere.

Am I missing some fonts packages or whatever?


Regards,

I seem to recall installing a whole bunch of optional font
packages. I'll attach the list of font rpms installed on
my system.

I also noticed one peculiar thing in a lesstif app I ported:
The app-default file had "overspecified" fonts that ended
in the registry-encoding pattern iso8859-1 and apparently
the encoding is now -2 instead of -1. I just fixed the
app-default file to say -* since I don't really care how it
is encoded, I just want the characters :-).baekmuk-bdf-fonts-2.2-4.fc8.noarch

May I ask what command did generate this packages list? diff'ing w/ the
result of `rpm -qa|grep -i font|sort` is not really handy.

Yeah I noticed that my NEdit font settings ask for "12", whereas
xfontsel, for this same font type, proposes 11. That didn't solve
anything to me anyway.

I have similar problems setting up proper fonts for GTK+-1 application
too, BTW.

That was what I used: rpm -q -a | grep -i font | sort

OK, thanks!

I've fixed my nedit and gtk+-1 app font issues by installing some more
system fonts (x11 75dpi ones IIRC).
