  2. [all variants] Re: Setting font pixelsize in GTK+/2 RC .gtkrc-2.0

    The answer is it doesn't exist. No option:

    https://developer.gnome.org/gtk3/stable/GtkSettings.html#GtkSettings--gtk-font-name

    GTK makes things more difficult than they already are.
  3. [all variants] Setting font pixelsize in GTK+/2 RC .gtkrc-2.0

    Does anyone know the option to set the font pixelsize (as opposed to size) for GTK apps?

    .gtkrc-2.0 does this by default:



    gtk-font-name="Sans 10"


    But the value 10 defaults to font size.

    [SOLVED] Re: Upgraded to 16.10 cant login

    That's the Windows way. When in trouble reinstall.

    Anyway set a root password. Ubuntu install does not set a password for root by default.



    # sudo passwd root

    [all variants] Getting Function Keys to work

    On the Ubuntu Live CD (16.04) all of the function keys for brightness, volume etc work. In my own Ubuntu distro they don't. How does the Live CD configure these keys?

    Ah ha, you are mistaken Sir. Obsolete packages were id'd and removed. But not quite in the desired order.

    Why are you repairing the boot loader if you can't log-in?

    As others have suggested switch to a tty terminal (CTRL+ALT+F1). Log-in as root. Assuming that the root password has been set. It's...

    There is the wise (or unwise for that matter) way of doing it. And then there is the natural way of doing it.

    [all variants] upstart-sysv removed from 16.10

    This package has been removed from 16.10. So we are now forced to install systemd along with init.

    Anyone know if we can get upstart-sysv back into 16.10?

    I had to chroot from a Live CD and dpkg --configure -a.

    It's a mystery why it didn't work first time around. I suspect that libc6 needed updating first and when that didn't happen and as some...

    There's plenty of free space on /boot.

    If I (auto)remove some of the packages like friendly-recovery say, apt just hangs at this point.

    Sorry but the process isn't critical, convoluted or significant. The swap partition can be anywhere and in any form really, even part of a LVM. /boot is an unencrypted primary volume.
