Bug Description

The IconView does not use the users default font, it is currently set as an arbitrary value (lines 127 & 128 IconView.cs)

The problem stems from line 126, when obtaining the pango context. Using the method using on line 126 gives us a context but it does not contain the information for the default font.

Attached is a patch for trunk which addresses this problem by obtaining the context of a dummy gtk.IconView. This means the font is now correct.

In fact, we know about the issue. Though, thanks for the idea as I'm not a GTK hacker, really. In fact, we do need one =)

Sorry does that mean the patch is okay or not? :-)

I'm not sure if k-9 has checked it out yet as it's not yet merged into trunk, but I will look at it when I get home (currently out and about) and let you know ;)

Ah sorry, I thought you and K-9 were the same person for some reason :-)
