synaptic terminal ignores font settting; also set background?

Post by Flemur » Sat Oct 13, 2018 11:19 am

Hi, Mint 18.3, synaptic 0.83

When I set synaptic's "terminal" font, the setting is ignored; I get the same result whether I run "logged in" as root (sudo -i) or with "gksudo".

The font I defined is listed in the preferences GUI when synaptic is restarted and the file
/root/.synaptic/synaptic.conf
contains the proper setting:

Code: Select all

TerminalFontName "Liberation Mono Bold 12";
but I see a serif-font.

Also: is there a way to make the synaptic terminal be black text on a white background?

TIA!
