Thanks for investigating !
In the meantime I reinstalled the latest gnustep tars ; as for
gnustep-back i followed the recommandation from Documentation/install.texi
as follows:
        make install
        make distclean
        configure --enable-graphics=art --with-name=art
        make install
        defaults write NSGlobalDomain GSBackend libgnustep-xlib
Then i tried to launch ProjectCenter

1) When using the xlib backend, i still got a menu with no font, or at
least fith no visible font.
-> From what you discovered, is there a way for me to handle this
problem ? Can i set myself the fore- and backgroung colours ?

2) When using the art backend, as before, i got a menu with some text
inside, but hardly visible since coloured in grey over grey
-> How could i resolve this ?

3) In either of the above situations, when i launch ProjectCenter i get an
icon in the bottom-left and a menu in the top-left corner of the screen.
Unfortunately, when either the menu of the icon looses focus, the menu
disappear, which makes it very boring to reach !!
-> Is it the expected behaviour ?

Thanks in advance,
