Tuning Debian Etch 4.0

During using Debian Etch I found some issues which I have described in this article.

Add this string gtk-font-name="Your favorite font name and size" in the gtk config. In my case this look like this:

File “.gtkrc-2.0.mine” included in the .gtkrc-2.0 :

gtk-font-name="Tahoma 8"
