    xine menu fonts - resizing


    I have a simple question that seems a little hard to answer, but
    Hopefully not for someone here.

    I am using Kubuntu I have 2 displays my main lcd monitor and my 2nd
    display which is my tv. On my tv my partner cannot read the xine menu
    fonts, that is when you choose xine open -> file and look on hard drive
    for a file, I have been trying to change the settings in xine config
    file in ~/.config but cannot adjust them.

    I adjusted the global fonts in the kde settings but that doesn't have a
    great effect on the menu fonts. Could I add a line to config to specify
    that I want internal xine fonts to display in sans serif 11 or similar
    and added bonus would be if that would only occur on TV display.
    Xinerama is disabled ( Option "Xinerama" "0").

    This is relevant sections from xorg.

    Section "Monitor"
    Identifier "Monitor1"
    VendorName "Unknown"
    ModelName "TV-0"
    HorizSync 28.0 - 33.0
    VertRefresh 43.0 - 72.0
    EndSection

    Section "Device"
    Identifier "Videocard1"
    Driver "nvidia"
    VendorName "NVIDIA Corporation"
    BoardName "GeForce 6200"
    BusID "PCI:1:0:0"
    Screen 1
    EndSection

    Section "Screen"
    Identifier "Screen0"
    Device "Videocard0"
    Monitor "Monitor0"
    DefaultDepth 24
    Option "TwinView" "0"
    Option "metamodes" "CRT: nvidia-auto-select +0+0"
    EndSection

    Section "Screen"
    Identifier "Screen1"
    Device "Videocard1"
    Monitor "Monitor1"
    DefaultDepth 24
    Option "TwinView" "0"
    Option "metamodes" "TV: nvidia-auto-select +0+0"
    EndSection

    Is this actually a simple question ? If you have an idea, on how to
    solve it I would appreciate hearing it.

    xine on a TV monitor

    I can't understand whether this is a "too small and blurry" or "too un-contrasty"
    issue for your partner in viewing xine on a TV.

    Can you expand your description?

    In the interrim, look over this entry in the ubuntu pages:

    It would be in the too small and blurry category. The letters tend to meld into each other I can make it out but it does take effort. If I could increase the font size by 2 and change font to something simple like deja sans or similar it would be great.

    This isn't a problem with subtitles though, its with the fonts used in xine when selecting a file via the xine menu.
