Thanks, that made it easy to compile it. And on my machine
the fonts look a bit too large for some of the objects, but
not really weird. There are both monespaced and proportional
fonts shown. I guess this increases the likelihood that the
fonts used by XForms aren't installed on your system. Did
you had a look at the output if you start your program with
'-fldebug 1' as an additional option?
I found the same problem when I moved to a new OS. The fonts were there but the system choose 100dpi instead of 75dpi which I was apparently using. All the programs exhibited large fonts. I fixed this by adding the following before fl_initialize;

fl_set_font_name(FL_NORMAL_STYLE,            "-*-helvetica-medium-r-*-*-*-?-*-75-*-*-*-*");

fl_set_font_name(FL_BOLD_STYLE,            "-*-helvetica-bold-r-*-*-*-?-*-75-p-*-*-*");
fl_set_font_name(FL_ITALIC_STYLE,            "-*-helvetica-medium-o-*-*-*-?-*-75-p-*-*-*");
fl_set_font_name(FL_BOLDITALIC_STYLE,        "-*-helvetica-bold-o-no*-*-*-?-*-75-p-*-*-*");

fl_set_font_name(FL_FIXED_STYLE,            "-adobe-courier-medium-r-*-*-*-?-*-75-m-*-*-*");
fl_set_font_name(FL_FIXEDBOLD_STYLE,        "-adobe-courier-bold-r-*-*-*-?-*-75-m-*-*-*");
fl_set_font_name(FL_FIXEDITALIC_STYLE,        "-adobe-courier-medium-o-*-*-*-?-*-75-m-*-*-*");
fl_set_font_name(FL_FIXEDBOLDITALIC_STYLE,    "-adobe-courier-bold-o-*-*-*-?-*-75-m-*-*-*");

fl_set_font_name(FL_TIMES_STYLE,            "-*-times-medium-r-*-*-*-?-*-75-p-*-*-*");
fl_set_font_name(FL_TIMESBOLD_STYLE,        "-*-times-bold-r-*-*-*-?-*-75-p-*-*-*");
fl_set_font_name(FL_TIMESITALIC_STYLE,        "-*-times-medium-i-*-*-*-?-*-75-p-*-*-*");
fl_set_font_name(FL_TIMESBOLDITALIC_STYLE,    "-*-times-bold-i-*-*-*-?-*-75-p-*-*-*");

fl_set_font_name(FL_MISC_STYLE,            "-*-charter-medium-r-*-*-*-?-*-75-*-*-*-*");
fl_set_font_name(FL_MISCBOLD_STYLE,        "-*-charter-bold-r-*-*-*-?-*-75-*-*-*-*");
fl_set_font_name(FL_MISCITALIC_STYLE,        "-*-charter-medium-i-*-*-*-?-*-75-*-*-*-*");
fl_set_font_name(FL_SYMBOL_STYLE,            "-*-symbol-medium-r-*-*-*-?-*-75-*-*-*-*");

This forces the use of the 75dpi fonts.

Hope that helps,


                         Best regards, Jens
