Python error when trying to change font

Bug Description

1. I start pyroom with ./pyroom
2. I hit CTL+P to bring up preferences
3. I click the font button
4. I select a different font face
5. I click "OK"
6. I see an error message saying:

Traceback (most recent call last):

  File "/home/chrisd/src/pyroom/PyRoom/", line 178, in change_font
    font_type = widget.get_name().split('_')[1]

IndexError: list index out of range

7. In stdout in the terminal, I get the following errors:

/home/chrisd/src/pyroom/PyRoom/ PangoWarning: failed to choose a font, expect ugly output. engine-type='PangoRenderFc', script='common'

8. The "Custom font" radio button is checked now but the font button disabled
9. Clicking any other font option ("Default document", "Default monospace") results in the same error

It appears that checking any of the font options causes the same problem to occur.

Version information:
./pyroom --version
pyroom 0.4.2

I pulled this from the bzr repo at 10:55 AM on Mon, Aug 23rd, 2010.

I print()'d the widget.get_name() and it appears to be "GtkRadioButton" for the radio buttons as expected. I'm not sure why we are trying to split the widget name on '_' when there are none. I must be missing something. (chrelad) wrote :

I think I've got this fixed. It appeared to me that there was no name explicitly set on the GTK objects, so that's all I did and everything started working. I'll include a patch for the changed lines in

Thanks for reporting and fixing this. I had briefly looked at it over the weekend. Will push to trunk when my version of bzr is no longer broken.
