flwm font size in OLPC XO-1
« on: March 13, 2010, 05:45:02 AM »
I'm trying to get some bigger fonts for the flwm menu/window title on Tinycore - OCLP XO1, since they are _really_ small on the 7" 200dpi XO screen.

I compiled (tinycore 2.9 + compiletc + Xorg-7.4-dev) both flwm-1.14.tgz and flwm-1.13_topside.tgz  changing FONT_SIZE in  config.h to 14/16,  with no luck.
They both compile and install fine BTW (actually make is expecting to find install in /usr/local/bin but the symlink to busybox is in /usr/bin).

Is that the correct variable to change?
Do I need to look elsewhere/add something to get the menu/window title fonts to increase?
 
Thanks

Changing both TITLE_FONT_SIZE and MENU_FONT_SIZE from 12 to 14 worked for me:
Code: [Select]

// font for titles (if not set, helvetica bold is used):                     
// If this name is specific enough the font size is ignored.                 
#define TITLE_FONT "-*-helvetica-medium-r-normal--*"                         
#define TITLE_FONT_SIZE 14     

// font to use in menus (if not set helvetica is used):         
#define MENU_FONT "-*-helvetica-medium-r-normal--*"             
#define MENU_FONT_SIZE 14

Then I must be messing up in installing it.
How do you make it stick?

Compile it. I placed a script in the directory named compileit.
./compileit

Thank you.
Compiling was not the major problem. The problem was to realize that the compiled flwm and /usr/bin/flwm_topside is the same thing... ;D

Ah yes. The output of compilation is always flwm.
Since we have fans of classic left side as well as topside, it is renamed when topside is desired.

After observing some users struggle with the "missing" minimize (iconize) feature I have just made a change for topside. I made a new button for iconized, the more traditional _, and moved it to the more traditional location on the right next to existing buttons.
