    Problem with swaret (--compile)

    Today I decided to try the --compile flag on swaret.
    I removed all the X11 packages from de system.
    And did
    swaret --compile x11
    After I started the new X, some of the fonts in some of the programs are very small.
    For example the fonts in firefox got smaller.

    Any idea why this happened?

    Try running xorgsetup, rather than xorgconfig as xorgconfig has a few options that can damage hardware like refresh rates and video ram size, after this see how the fonts are, after this you could try editing your xorg.conf file by hand and telling it not to scale the fonts, like this;
    FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi/:unscaled"
    FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/100dpi/:unscaled"
    Also try moving different fonts to the top of the font list in order for it to use those first. Failing all that you can try updating the fonts themselves, you can get the 6.8.2 X11 fonts here:
