GNOME Bugzilla – Bug 114653
Uses wrong fonts for fonts "Serif" and "Sans"
Last modified: 2004-12-22 21:47:04 UTC
The print preview of gnumeric 1.1.18 and evolution 1.3 uses wrong
fonts for "Serif" and "Sans". I know that these are aliases for
other fonts (probably Nimbus or Luxi, I am using RH9). The wrong fonts
are also used for printing. I cannot see the mechanism how that particular
font is used. If I select different fonts (not aliases) than it works
correctly, but the "Sans" font seems to be used implicitly in some
apps (I cannot get the text for evolution mails printed in the font
of my choice, even if the headers are alright).
I think it is caused by libgnomeprint using "Helvetica" instead of
"Sans" as default font, causing the first available font in the system
to be used..
Attached is a patch from RH which fixes this problem
Created attachment 20097 [details] [review]
Use Sans instead of Helvetica as fallback font
Oops, it seems I missed bug #120954.. This bug might be a dup..
