Sub_title: How to make bold text on the menu normal weight on Puppy Precise?
 

Hi, great puppy doctors.

I changed the Backdrop of my Puppy Precise (5.6.1) to a lighter colored one. Now I want to make the text in the main menu lighter weight. The bold text is a bit out of place. Is thee a way to do this? May be specify a different font and select normal weight for it?

Thanks

Hi, naena.

In folder /root/.jwm there is a file called jwmrc-personal. Load it in your text editor. Line 8 or so (see attached pic), insert the following:

<MenuStyle>
<Font>Sans-10:italic</Font>
</MenuStyle>

If you don't like italics, try simply this:

<MenuStyle>
<Font>Sans-10</Font>
</MenuStyle>

Save.

Go to the initial black console with Ctrl-Alt-Backspace, and type
xwin jwm
Press return.

Your chosen font should now show in the menu.

Best regards.

PS. You may choose a larger font by changing the number 10 to 11 or 12 in the "Font" line.

Musher0!

I apologize for the delay in replying -- that's rude. I forgot it for awhile because of some scary personal events. (Everything's under control just now).

It worked perfectly. Thank you also for explaining how it works. Now maybe I can try some other fonts too. (I am making a broad one that I'll post here when it is finished)

Best regards,

naena
