Fix for menu font size in LibreOffice

April 12, 2021 — BarryK

This morning posted how LibreOffice was compiled in EasyOS:

...and mentioned that menu font size is a bit small.

Well, that is the case for all gtk+3 applications, compared with gtk+2 apps. The reason is, Easy is released with a theme set for gtk+2 apps, but no theme set for gtk+3 apps. So gtk+3 apps use the default theme built-in to gtk+3.

Currently, the file /root/.config/gtk-3.0/settings.ini has this in it:

gtk-theme-name =
# ref:
gtk-primary-button-warps-slider = false theme specified. The default gtk+2 theme has font "DejaVu Sans 12", so have appended this to settings.ini:

gtk-font-name = DejaVu Sans 12

That does the trick. Ideally though, should have a theme that matches the one chosen for gtk+2.
