PostPosted: Mon 27 Apr 2020, 20:58    Post subject:  Here is the solution
Subject description: ROX-filer: font for recent files in list wider than for regular files - hard to read
 

In short: use puppy MENU-Desktop-JWM Desktop-GTK Theme to set the font to, in my case, DejaVu Sans Mono 10. (Do NOT assume that ROX-filer Options Pinboard Use_custom_font will have any effect on the Filer window font.)

ROX will use the GTK font, and will bold recently changed files, and will maintain the same font width for mono bold and normal characters!

Thank you to all of you who pointed out possible font and style issues. Those suggestions did not solve my issue, per se, but taught me a lot about fonts, and finally led me to find the solution. The file ~/gtkrc-2.0 had the font ROX uses for listings, and that same file had a warning about being auto-generated, which led me to remember the JWM Desktop GTK Theme window.

P.S. If I knew how to some way mark this issue as closed, I would do it.

Go to the first post in this topic.
You have control of it.
Select edit.
Add solved to the subject.

The subject of the first post, in a topic, is the tittle of the topic.

Subject description: Tried to edit 1st topic subject to add 'closed'; think I no longer own it
 

Went to first post. Did not see 'edit'.

I notice that first topic subject description is different than the topic name.

Name of Topic: Gripes about ROX-filer 8 vs 7.5

Subject of first post: ROX-filer: font for recent files in list wider than for regular files - hard to read

Did someone else than me take ownership of the first post? (In order to make a better Topic?)

Or, am I just looking in the wrong place to see 'edit'?

Thanx

G'day, InTheDog(gy)House. Thank you for raising such an interesting and fruitful thread (and welcome to The Kennels!).

Your difficulty in editing your first post is most likely because you seem to have registered twice, with slightly different forum names. The forum software will see these as separate individuals, and so won't let the latter edit the former's first post.

Go in as the former (InTheDoggyHouse) and you should be able to edit your first post without difficulty ...

Flash has control of the forum.
He sometimes changes a topic title to make it read better or better identify what it is about.

If you are logged into the forum.
When you look at a post you actually made. (when using that login)
There will be an edit button on the top right of the post.
Click on edit and you should get the message writting window.
Here you can change anything.
Than select submit.
