Description Kevin Street 2002-12-01 00:30:15 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.2.6 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20020830 Description of problem: When viewed in vnc, gnome-terminal's fonts are rendered at a much smaller size than when viewed in X. All other application's fonts appear the same in X and vnc. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.start vncserver 2.connect to it with vncviewer 3.open a gnome-terminal 4.see the teeny-tiny fonts Actual Results: font rendering in gnome-terminal is much smaller in vnc than in X Expected Results: fonts should look the same in vnc Additional info: - display size 1280x1024 in both X and vncviewer - dpi set to 75 in both - tried from windows and linux vncviewers - tried "use same font as other apps" in gnome-terminal - tried specifying font and size (eg monospace 10) in g-t profile - tried other font names, they all do the same thing I can get the gnome-terminal fonts to look similar in vnc by changing to eg. monospace 14, but then they're HUGE when I go back to X. I need to keep switching the font size back and forth but at least that gives a workaround.

I can't reproduce; if I start gnome-terminal in vncviewer then it has the same fonts as my regular gnome-terminal. What is the output of "xrdb -query" on regular X and on your VNC X? Specifically the Xft.dpi value.
Comment 2 Kevin Street 2002-12-01 01:54:47 UTC
xrdb -query on vnc Xft.dpi: 96 Xft.hinting: true Xft.hintstyle: hintmedium xrdb -query on X Xft.antialias: 1 Xft.dpi: 96.000000 Xft.hinting: 1 Xft.hintstyle: hintmedium Xft.rgba: none I now see that I'm also getting this message in the vnc log: Xlib: extension "RENDER" missing on display ":1.0". for some applications, but not for gnome-terminal. For example I get this when I start the system monitor which displays correctly.
Comment 3 Havoc Pennington 2002-12-01 02:19:59 UTC
That's strange. Also, 8.0 shipped with an Xft bug causing huge memory leaks in all Xft apps when using a non-RENDER server - I wonder why you aren't seeing that? Does the gnome-terminal menubar also have smaller text than say the gnome-system-monitor menubar, or is it only the terminal area itself? What is the output of "rpm -q vte gnome-terminal Xft fontconfig freetype pango gtk2"?
Comment 4 Kevin Street 2002-12-01 02:56:37 UTC
I'm just setting up vnc, so I probably just haven't noticed the memory leaks yet. (yikes! just watched system monitor in vnc ... leaks about 0.1 MB / sec) Is there a patch? Only the terminal area has a small font. The title, menu bars, menus and pop up dialogs look normal. vte-0.8.19-1 gnome-terminal-2.0.1-5 Xft-2.0-1 fontconfig-2.0-3 freetype-2.1.2-7 pango-1.1.1-1 gtk2-2.0.6-8 vnc-3.3.3r2-39
Comment 5 Havoc Pennington 2002-12-01 03:35:04 UTC
There is a patch for the Xft memory leak, but hasn't made it through the errata pipeline yet. It's just adding a couple of XDestroyImage() calls. I'm not sure what else to guess at here, adding some cc.

Hi Kevin, Are you still seeing this?
Comment 7 Kevin Street 2004-11-09 20:19:21 UTC
I don't know. This was submitted on RH8. I'm now on FC2 and don't have vnc set up at the moment. I'm going to install FC3 in the next few days and can play with vnc there. If it hasn't appeared to anyone else you can close this and I'll reopen it if I see it on a current system.
