422: set global font size does work

Jim1911 reported this: Set global font size does not work. Someone else also reported this for the previous alpha release, I think gposil.

Ok, you have got me completely puzzled. It works as expected, as it has always worked.

I tested 4.3pre-beta with both kernels, no problem. You do realise that X has to be restarted? And also, not all fonts are affected. Some applications, such as SeaMonkey, are configured to override the X global dpi setting, meaning you won't see any change. With ROX-Filer, Abiword and most other GTK and Xlib apps you will see a change.

Set Global Font Size
Selecting menu item Desktop "Set Global Font Size" does nothing.

Executing the code "set-xftdpi</Program>" from .jwmrc results in "bash: syntax error near unexpected token ‘newline’"

Is there a file that I can manually edit or is there other code that can be used to call up the "Set Global Font Size" gui?

set global font size
Weird that it works for me.

Anyway, I'm not going to fix it. Using Gins, it requires 3 files just for a very basic little program. It's the only app currently in Puppy that uses Gins, it was an experiment.

I'll change it over to Xdialog or gtkdialog3 and remove the gins package.
