for gtk 1.x applications you control font info through ~/.gtkrc.
font = "-*-arial-medium-r-*-*-10-*-*-*-*-*-iso8859-15"
for gtk 2.x applications, use ~/.gtkrc-2.0.
gtk-font-name = "Garmond 15"
it's kind of annoying, isn't it? you kind of wish they'd just use
.Xdefaults, but no. we get another dotfile.
as far as gnome goes, i'd uninstall the whole thing and reinstall it.

Okay. So after migrating to unstable from stable, I'm enjoying this whole
new anti-aliased fonts under X apps (all GTK apps, I think.) But the
fonts are a bit too small. Is there a way to change the default font for
GTK apps? (fonts for the menu-bar and such.)
On a related note, my migration has left gnome and qt completely in
non-working state. Both QT and Gnome have too many dependency conflicts,
and the dependencies are broken, too. Thankfully I don't use QT or Gnome
as my primary window manager, but still this is soooooooo annoying...
