Emacs*menubar*fontare not working?
I am trying to use a resource like
Emacs*menubar*font to set the
font of the menubar but it’s not working.
In Motif, the use of ‘font’ resources is obsoleted in order to support internationalisation. If you are using the real Motif menubar, this resource is not recognized at all; you have to say:
If you are using the Lucid menubar, for backward compatibility with existing user configurations, the ‘font’ resource is recognized. Since this is not supported by Motif itself, the code is a kludge and the ‘font’ resource will be recognized only if the ‘fontList’ resource resource is unset. This means that the resource
even though the latter is more specific.
In non-Motif configurations using ‘--with-mule’ and
‘--with-xfs’ it is necessary to use the
resource instead of the
font resource. The backward
compatibility kludge was never implemented for non-Motif builds.
