Fvwm 2.6.9, Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
I created a Menu that includes UTF-8 fonts in the range U+25F0 to U+25F3 as well as others of similar type for window positioning using Mouse 1…: ◰ ◳ ◱ ◲. I had the following in my .fvwm2rc file:
MenuStyle * Font “xft:Bitstream Vera Sans:Bold:size=12:minispace=True:antialias=True:encoding=iso10646-1”
AddToMenu Window-Placement-Top “Window Placement Top” Title
+ “1 Window” Title
+ "▢ " ResizeMove 1590p 865p 1120p 0p
+ “2 Window” Title
+ "◧ " ResizeMove 790p 865p 1120p 0p
+ "◨ " ResizeMove 790p 865p 1920p 0p
+ “↑▬↑” ResizeMove 1590p 419p 1120p 0p
+ “↓▬↓” ResizeMove 1590p 419p 1120p 447p
+ “3 Window” Title
+ “‾‾” ResizeMove 1590p 288p 1120p 0p
+ “―” ResizeMove 1590p 288p 1120p 290p
+ “__” ResizeMove 1590p 288p 1120p 580p
+ “4 Window” Title
+ "◰ " ResizeMove 790p 419p 1120p 0p
+ "◳ " ResizeMove 790p 419p 1920p 0p
+ "◱ " ResizeMove 790p 419p 1120p 447p
+ "◲ " ResizeMove 790p 419p 1920p 447p
They are currently displaying properly in my .fvwm2rc file.
However, they displayed properly in Fvwm menus until I installed a couple of additional font packages through apt install. Now I’m seeing squares or blanks in place of the UTF-8 characters. I’m getting the same result no matter what font I use in .fvwm2rc, xft or otherwise. I have since removed the newly installed font packages, but Fvwm menus still isn’t displaying properly. As stated, the fonts are still displaying properly in my .fvwm2rc file.
Out of curiosity, I removed MenuStyle * Font… from .fvwm2rc to see what would happen. The fonts are displaying properly, again, in Fvwm menus, but in a small font making it difficult to see, and only as long as I don’t define a menu font in .fvwm2rc.
I have no clue what this font is. My main question is:
What is this font that Fvwm2 is falling back on if I don’t specify one if .fvwm2rc. I need to change its size so I can see the menu without a magnifying glass.
My optional question is: how do I fix this so Fvwm menus display properly again like they were before?
