How to change Fluxbox fonts?
I've tried copying/modifying the "Clean" theme as a starting point (as root). I can successfully modify many things, but nothing I do to change the fonts works one bit. I've tried using xfontsel to come up with a fontname, but it doesn't work at all.

Thanks again!Isaac Kuo, ICQ 29055726 or Yahoo mechdan
