Subject: vim-gtk3: Unreadable font since update to gtk3

[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Package: vim-gtk3
Version: 2:8.2.0510-1

I used vim-gtk for ages without problems. Most of the time I use it on
the console which is also working with the new version but some times I
need to use gvim (Mainly when I have to edit files with foreign UTF-8
chars in it as my console is not capable to display other than latin1).

Since the update that dropped the gtk2 version, gvim is not usable
anymore. When I start it, it comes up with an unreadable font like it
the attached screenshot.

I know that I can choose the font in edit menu but it will be the same
unreadable font the next start.

I have no idea what font gvim with gtk3 is using and I have no idea how
to get back a readable font there.

Regards
   Klaus

Klaus,

I cannot reproduce this.

What does your .vimrc contain? In partcular do you have settings for guifont
and/or guifontwide?

If you do, does removing them and using the default fix it?

Thanks

Mark

Good point. I have such a part since ages in my .vimrc and even don't
know the original reason:
```
set gcr+=a:blinkon0
set gfn=9x13
set guioptions=agimlTf
set guifont=Courier\ 10\ Pitch\ 10
```

Removing the second and forth setting helps indeed.

I am not sure  why that made problems with GTK3 and did not with GTK2.

Regards
   Klaus

Good. I will close this report as a configuration error.

Feel free to reopen if you are not happy with that.

No, nor me. Since neither vim not gtk2/3 is forked in Devuan, if you really
think that is a bug you would be better raising it on Debian's BTS.

Thanks
