[Fink-devel] gtk+2 fonts

2002-09-17 Thread Ben Hines
the gtk+2 package should do RunTimeVars: GDK_USE_XFT: 1 or setenv GDK_USE_XFT 1 So the fonts use xft properly. This enables packages like gftp to work without causing font fallback errors. It also gives you antialiased fonts. Very nice looking: http://homepage.mac.com/bhines/xchat.png -Ben

#if defined(__APPLE__) works. However this is considered fragile by Apple and is not reccomended. Better practice is to check for platorm in the configure script and add something like DARWIN or MACOSX to the CFLAGS depending on platform (e.g, -DMACOSX), then use #ifdef MACOSX ... #else ..
