No Fonts with FreeBSD
« on: December 24, 2003, 04:26:34 am »
I compiled Lazarus for FreeBSD 5.2 and - to get the obvious stuff out of the way - it compiled fine, runs without a hitch and compiles projects no problem.

BUT I can't edit the font type of components neither with the Properties Editor nor by assigning font names at runtime. I think I installed all required packages. The font settings are just frozen, read-only.

Also, I cannot change the widget type to anything else but "default (gtk)", but I would very much like to use qt or at least gtk2. When I do change this setting, the compiler cannot find the unit Interfaces. Are those problems connected?

AFAIK, at the moment the font settings are locked the the theme settings. So changing them has no effect

You can't use QT, the interface is outdated and probably wont compile

If you want to use gtk2,  my guess is that the LCL needs to bve recompiled, but I don't know the proper instructions for that.

Doctor, is there something you can do about it?

Hm... I really like Lazarus, I would very much like to develop applications with it, but this is kind of a showstopper.

AFAIK, at the moment the font settings are locked the the theme settings. So changing them has no effect

*If* I were to change that, where in the codebase would I have to start looking/modifying? Is it even possible?

You can't use QT, the interface is outdated and probably wont compile

Speaking from an enterprise point of view, QT is important. Is there someone working on QT bindings?

I guess that it is possible, since in the past it was possible. I've no idea where to look (it's not my area)
Maybe ask the mailing list.

AFAIK no.
We were alos a bit waiting on FPC2.0 since rumours were that then external C-object calling was supported. Now all QT calls have to be "flattend".
If you have serious plans for implementing the QT interface, ask the mailinglist.
