Re: gtk/quartz default font woe, and gtk-font-name




Just a partial answer to my own 2nd question - Monodevelop's main/src/core/MonoDevelop.Ide/MonoDevelop.Components/IdeTheme.cs
contains this cryptic comment:

//HACK: we must initilize some Gtk rc before Gtk.Application is initialized on Mac/Windows
//      otherwise it will not be loaded correctly and theme switching won't work.

This suggests that it is known not to work by some of the Xamarin folks... I don't know whether it is gtk/quartz or gtk-sharp, but that at least suggests some workaround is needed.

 I have been staring at this
 particular section of code for a few days, and seem to be
 having problem with it:

 Try setting the default font, might need to tweak this.

 (gdk_screen_get_setting): Try

 tweak this.

 What I have is this error and this stack dump - which seems
 to come from "name = [[NSFont systemFontOfSize:0]
 familyName];" - 
 although the message is somewhat different, but there is
 only one thing in gdk_screen_get_setting which does fonts,
 so that must be it -
 I think __NSGetMetaFontInstance is some sort of backend code
 to "[[NSFont systemFontOfSize:0] familyName]".

 FWIW, I am trying to embed a gtk scrolledwindow inside a
 carbon application. The gtk scrolledwindow in turn, has
 another foreign Cocoa widget inside.
 
 I mainly have two questions:
 
 - I think the error I am seeing is that a "strange"
 non-Cocoa window doesn't let me get at Cocoa's default NS
 system fonts. I am tempted to reverse that patch (and
 hard-coding a particular font name) to see if I am right. Is
 there any caveate for trying to do that, or is there a
 better way of improving this change? or is there any way I
 can give my widget more of a Cocoa attributes/properties to
 make it happen? The problem is that the error is happening
 at gtk_widget_init, and I am at a loss at how I can insert
 anything "earlier" than the constructor.
 
 - supposedly setting "gtk-font-name" should bypass that code
 - but I ran dtruss against my app and it never tried to read
 ~/.gtkrc-20, any of the rc files in the gtk directory, etc.
 Is that a known quirk of gtk/quartz ? That it ignores
 ~/.gtkrc, GTK2_RC_FILES and friends? I don't think that's
 always the case since Monodevelop and Banshee both ships
 some sort of theming rc's. But it just seem that
 gtk_widget_init then gtk_style_init, never read those files,
 for some reason? this behavior seems to be poorly
 documented.
 (you can probably tell from that gtksharp_object_newv I am
 using gtksharp).
