|Great release candidate!|
I liked the default fixed font (at least in aterm). But it's just a personal aesthetic thing, so I can modify my own .Xdefaults
However one (small) problem with smoothansi is that the "extended characters" do not get displayed as they used to. Try for instance running xsetup.sh script and you'll see what I mean.
The original purpose of my seeking a tiny GUI scripting language, i.e., Lua/Fltk was to replace Dialog/Whiptail scripts running from within X. Of couse non-X, as boot time setup options still need Dialog/Whiptail. Running them in non-X is not an issue. Running xsetup from within a currently running X session is curious at best, but point taken. If one insists on running Dialog/Whiptail scripts from within X then perhaps the hostings xterm (aterm) can specify the fixed font as previous used, i.e, aterm -fn fixed -e your_dialog_script and thereby avoid this issue.
