Most fonts (not all interestingly) are too small to be readable in
gitk (yes, this is a 1:1 screenshot):
I seem the issue temporarily fixed by deleting my
~/.kde folder. But after opening/closing some applications, the issue has reappeared. I am unaware of doing anything relating to fonts. I have also realised that the issue appears to affect multiple X11 appliactions. I tested with
I have noticed that disabpling TrueType fonts in xterm solves the issue. So now I think this is more closely related to X11, rather than gtk.
xterm will load a default font, if the one specified in
~/.Xresources is not found.
urxvt will instead bail out with the message
urxvt: unable to load base fontset, please specify a valid one using -fn, aborting. So, being able to run
urxvt tells me that is finds the font. But it is rendered as tiny pixels as displayed above :(
I followed suggestions of another question (and some other solutions found via Google), but none of the proposed solutions worked.
gitgdoes not have the necessary features for filtering commits.
update-alternatives: error: no alternatives for wish
- modifying the font settings in either
I've also tried
tig to get what I want, but nothing really works as well as
gitk and I'd love to get it working again.
Note: This happened after a blank reinstall of Ubuntu. Not sure what went wrong and where.
My wild guess is that it cannot find the default fonts. So I reinstalled
tk but that did not help either.
