PostPosted: Mon 06 Nov 2017, 19:43    Post subject:  Seamonkey now requires gtk3  

Just when I had my Slacko64-6.9.9.9 k 4.4 working well, the latest Seamonkey (2.49.1) requires gtk-3.0. I want the mailer & other components, so firefox etc are unsuitable. The slackware current version (64bit) also requires gtk3 and differs from the Seamonkey website version, having more dependancies. I got the 3 packages required (at-spi2-atk-2, at-spi2-core-2 & gtk+3-3) from the slackware repository, and the Seamonkey site version runs, but now headings & menus are microscopic. With gtk2, I edited /root/.gtkrc-2.0 to specify a decent font & specify gtk-theme Raleigh. No longer working. Creating .gtkrc-3.0 doesn't help. Any ideas?

SHORT version of above:

Latest Seamonkey uses gtk3 and headings/menus microscopic. How to fix?

EDIT: 64 bit (oops, short version of post 1 too short - next 2 posts precede this edit.).

The Slackware build of Seamonkey-4.9.1 is still GTK2:

I've made a Puppyfied .sfs (just changed menu categories):

I don't know if it works with the latest Seamonkey versions, or the 64-bit versions, but maybe the Theme Font & Size Changer extension could help?

(I don't normally keep it installed because it seems annoying and possibly invasive - it insists on updating fairly often, and popping up an update screen from the author's website that couldn't be disabled on each update, last time I checked. He also appears to have any negative comments about the extension deleted on AMO.)

Appreciate suggestions guys, but 64bit Seamonkey 2.49.1 is gtk3 only (forgot to say that in short post) & Theme font addon is for FIrefox only.

Subject description: headings/menus microscopic
 

To fix font size for headings/menus, I suggest to modify userChrome.css.
see:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=6722
I hope it works for you.

It works with Seamonkey (and Thunderbird, too, IIRC):

Theme Font & Size Changer :: Add-ons for SeaMonkey - WORKS.

Sorry Makoto, the link you gave earlier said unavailable for my browser, but your latest link works. Thankyou!
I can disable updates & remove the menu bar button. (Item left in Tools menu).

EDIT: Thanks also Proebler - usrChrome.css below works too.

The original link was the author's homepage. I don't know why he doesn't list that it's compatible with Seamonkey. Embarassed

The following userChrome.css largely solves the problem. 'File -> Page Setup' & 'Bookmarks -> File Bookmark' popups still have small fonts.

/*
* Do not remove the @namespace line -- it's required for correct functioning
*/
@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul"); /* set default namespace to XUL */

/* Menu font */
menu, menuitem, window {
font-family: sans-serif !important;
font-size: 12pt !important;
}
