<nckx>ngz: Not necessarily; maybe it just petered out.
<nckx> I support the idea, by the way. It might be convenient to ignore errors when (substitute* (find-files "." ".*") …)'ing [is it?], but I don't think the bitrot that it allows is worth it. We can always add SUBSTITUTE-FOUND or something for that edge case.
<rvgn>Just a doubt. So there is actally a package "gnome-calendar" that exists. But why it didn't get installed in my system in the first place when I used desktop.scm config which invokes gnome meta-package and desktop-services?
<rekado>rvgn: that because the gnome package includes only an arbitarily small set of GNOME packages. There’s no good reason for this other than to give the users more flexibility.
<nckx>kmicu: But does fontconfig specify ‘uses’/preferences for fonts? fc-list shows many fine fonts, almost all of them a better fit (you know; proportional). My random guess is that Icecat tries a [few] well-known good font[s], then falls back to whatever.
<kmicu>(You could also use GTK’s setting to set a font for it. Alas as an old Conkeror user I know those things 😹)
<nckx>Such fun that popular malware is also called ‘chrome’ and this is impossible to DDG properly.
<kmicu>nckx: Oh, sorry, in fontconfig we only say things like ‘use Hack when an app requests a monospace font.’.
<nckx>kmicu: The fact that it's a monospace font makes it even weirder, yes. Like, is that the best you can do?
<nckx>All the docs I find are ‘how to subkern your subpixels’.
<kmicu>If you want per app setting then ~/.gtkrc-2.0.icecat with gtk-font-name = "Hack 8" and then executing GTK2_RC_FILES=~/.gtkrc-2.0.icecat icecat should do the job.
<nckx>That's weird. ‘fc-list | grep -i dejavu’ returns the empty void. I have it installed, and have things like /home/nckx/.guix-profile/share/fonts/truetype/DejaVuSans.ttf, and yes, I have run ‘fc-cache -r’ six hundred times.
<kmicu>Oh, it looks like Guix’s Icecat is GTK3 (“ #:configure-flags `("--enable-default-toolkit=cairo-gtk3"”).
<nckx>I wonder if /var/cache/fontconfig even makes sense on Guix Systems. It can only serve to torture people who accidentially ran ‘sudo fc-cache’ once (I'd never run it on purpose) and should definitely not override the one in ~/.cache.
