[vox-tech] conditional .gtkrc-2.0


I generally run gaim via ssh -X from my computer at home on my computer at work. This works just spiffily except the fonts show up quite a bit smaller on my laptop (12" 1024x768) then the do on my actual box at home (15" 1024x768).

I tried adding the following to .gtkrc-2.0 to increase the font size:

gtk-font-name = "Lucida Grande 14"

This looks great on the little laptop screen, but HUGE on the desktop screen. It also messes with proportions of the fonts in Mozilla on the desktop machine.

Question is this: how can I specify that font declaration just for gaim, or better yet, just for gaim when it's running over a remote X session?
