Problem with GUI fonts on V1.3

Hi,

I'm running V1.3.3 of the Gimp and haven't figured out how to adjust the fonts the GUI uses. I've tried adding the following to ~/gimp-1.3/gtkrc but it doesn't help. The GUI always uses the same tiny fonts.

style "default"
{
font = "lucidasanstypewriter-18"
}

widget_class "*" style "default"

I also have V1.2 installed and it does change it's fonts according to the contents of ~/.gimp-1.2/gtkrc.

I installed the Gimp from the source files and didn't see anything unusual in the config.log except that the tool couldn't locate support for xgettext, AA fonts, or XMU. Could the AA fonts account for this?

I've searched the www.gtk.org and www.gimp.org for help but didn't find anything. The gtk tutorial was interesting, and I had fun with the example used in the introduction but I'm still stuck. The only font problems I found in the Gimp mail threads were related to using fonts to attach text to a project.

So, can anyone offer a suggestion as to how I can change the fonts?

Thanks, bob richard

if everything else is set up right, (Xftconfig and such) starting your gimp this way:
GDK_USE_XFT=1 gimp-1.3
on the command line should do the trick.
