Panel font size in pixels instead of points


Description Frash 2020-02-15 20:22:18 CET
Created attachment 9462 

Xfce4-datetime-plugin shows the text in the panel in an a smaller font size than other plugins. This is because it sets the font size as pixels instead of points. The xfce default system font is set as points. Therefor setting the system font to 10 (points == 13.33 pixel) and the plugin font size to 10 (pixels) leads to different sizes.

I've testet all other panel plugins with GtkInspector for this bug and only xfce4-datetime-plugin and xfce4-cpufreq-plugin are affected.

The xfce4-genmon-plugin had the same bug, whitch got fixed in this commit:

I've created a patch which does basically the same like the genmon patch and it works from my testing.

Just to give you a heads up (as you posted several patches) - these plugins are not really super-well-maintained.
So please don't be frustrated if it takes some time for someone to take a look, push the patches and do a release...

OK, thank you for your reply.
I will be patient ;)
