    Resizing buttons, text, etc, for new resolution


    I finally changed the resolution on this really old monitor from 800x600 to 1024x768, and I'm wondering how I can tweak the size of all the GUI elements. The taskbar (does it go by a different name under Linux) was easy enough to resize, but I'm not sure how to make the default font bigger. What is the KDE equivalent of Windows' desktop->properties->Appearance tab?

    [edit] I did some more searching and located a couple useful sections of the Mandrake CC. Can everything be enlarged from here?

    There's also the Kde Personalizer, which is sometimes on the desktop, or sometimes in the K Menu.

    Also check out Kontrol Panel->Appearance and Themes. I believe you can change the font sizes in there.
