    How to manually set font in .gtkrc-2.0

    I'm switching away from a Gnome desktop, but I've been keeping gnome-settings-manager around so far, but I'd like to get rid of it (dependency chaining).

    What all does gnome-settings-manager do? What I've been able to tell is that it effects fonts and icons. I can set the icon theme manually in my ~/.gtkrc-2.0 file, but what about fonts? How do I determine what font gnome-settings-manager is using and manually set it?

    Add the following lines:

    style "font"
    {
    font_name = "Corbel 8"
    }
    widget_class "*" style "font"
    gtk-font-name = "Corbel 8"
    Replace "Corbel 8" with whatever font name and size you'd like to use.

    Gnome-settings-manager also controls you mouse cursor, and maybe a few other things
