    Really small fonts


    I just upgraded from 9.2 to 10.0, every thing went great! Whoo hoo!

    Just a few small problems that I can't find the answers to, so I thought I'd ask you guru's here.

    1. The system fonts are incredible small. Way small. I can't seem to fix it. For example, the fonts in Mozilla (like home) have to be around a 4pt. I remember reading about this a while ago, but I can't seem to find it anymore.

    2. Superkaramba puts all the modules on top of everything. How do I 'dock' it to the desk top?


    Thanks,
    Jeremy

    Are *all* fonts small? That sounds like a KDE problem. Check Kontrol Panel->Fonts (not sure where fonts are in there). If it's just mozilla, CTRL++.

    As far as superkaramba...I'll leave that one for someone else.

    I don't think so, but I'm not 100% sure as I used the x-screensaver startup script trick to get around the bug in 9.2 and upgraded to 10.0. It seems to be working the same way in 10.0, and I don't see any x-savers in the KDE control center.

    Bummer.

    [1/2 Solved]Really small fonts

    Okay, I took found the superkaramba problem:

    http://sourceforge.net/forum/forum.p...forum_id=67470

    Note that I had to use:

    Code:
    KWin::setType(winId(), NET::Dock);
    KWin::setState(winId(), NET::KeepBelow);
    in karamba.cpp. The other fix didn't work for me.

    Now... On to the fonts!!

    I set the system fonts using the KDE control center, and most everything looks good now. But for some reason in Mozilla and firefox, my fonts are super small in the application, not the html page view. My address bar font is about a 4pt. Very hard to read when I'm typing in linuxforums.org.

    Any other ideas?

    Maybe you've fixed the Firefox problem already (this post is quite old), but still, I got the same problem and found the solution, might help you or someone else googling this:

    I just had to create/edit the file ~/.gtkrc-2.0 and add the following:

    gtk-font-name="BitStreamVeraSans 11"

    This will become the default font for GTK2 apps, such as Firefox and Thunderbird.

    Note that the font name is written without spaces.
