I like to retain for as long as possible the ability to install packages into my Debian system (currently, ‘squeeze’) from stable DVD ISO images made from physical disks previously purchased. This means that at times I have to do some dpkg-buildpackge / make / configure trickery to get things t work as I would like…
I use GnuCash to track our family finances, and find when I leave it a while to update my credit card spending, etc. I am forever scrolling up and down in the window. By default there are not that many lines displayed on my screen, so I decided to try and change the font.
So I created a new file
~/.gtkrc-2.0.gnucash and added the following
font_name = "Sans 8"
widget "*.GnucashSheet" style "gnc-register"
Restart Gnucash and voila a full screen of entries.
These settings were tested on GnuCash 2.4.5 on Debian Squeeze. If you are using Gnucash on Windows your settings will be somewhere else…
