(And I have said
xrdb -merge .Xresources. I have even rebooted the computer.)
When I open Emacs from the command line, it uses Inconsolata. When I open Emacs from the desktop menu, or from file browser ("Open With"), Emacs does not use Inconsolata as its font. (But something that looks like DejaVu Sans Mono).
What is going on?
I have Ubuntu 13.10 and Xubuntu desktop.
