I am currently using Fluxbox on my little laptop, as it is very lightweight and my laptop has so little memory and computing power. But the fonts in GTK apps look quite unpallatable when using Fluxbox: too large, too small, jagged or fuzzy. This is what you can do to fix it:
- If you don’t allready have Gnome installed, install gnome control-center: pacman -Sy control-center
- Run gnome control-center from the CLI and configure the fonts to suit your preferences.
- Open up the file ~/.fluxbox/startup and add the following line somewhere above the line exec fluxbox –> /opt/gnome/libexec/gnome-settings-daemon
And that’s all. Now your GTK apps should have nice fonts!
