Something to consider: using something similar to fonts-system.lua (murgaLua_demos) to provide a visual display of available fonts. Perhaps also a checklist of the apps/configs you mentioned to allow the user to apply all or just specific ones.
|It would be nice to have a single script to change the default font for all areas, .torsmo, firefox, dfm, fluxbox, jwm, .Xdefaults|
Might consider trying a font that has multiple sizes. The Terminus font has several to choose from, including bold. You could include only two or three of them, say 12, 14, and 16. It's not as "cool" looking as smoothansi, but is clean and much more pleasing than misc-fixed.
|Unfortunately, smoothansi isn't scalable (and that goes for the rest of the artwiz fonts as well). Smoothansi is 13px|
Fonts that scale, however, can be a problem in fltk unless you dynamically adjust widget sizes according to the chosen font. As far as I know, the murgaLua bindings are missing the ability to retrieve the font size (in some widgets at least?), so this may be a problem.
