    Hi and Welcome !

    Have you tried to change Fonts in Options/content of Firefox?
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Yes, you can change in firefox.

    But you can also change all fonts and their size of your desktop.
    After install, all is installed in a default manner.
    You can change every desktop item and its size on your needs.
    And there are many, many possibilities available.
    This applies also to most desktop (KDE) programs, including your terminals.
    So there is very much to change.

    Hello Linuxforever, How to change default fonts in KDE desktop.
    I like Suse Linux very well, but not fonts.

    Which version of KDE are you using? It's different from 3.5.x to 4.x.x
    I do not respond to private messages asking for Linux help, Please keep it on the forums only.
    All new users please read this.** Forum FAQS. ** Adopt an unanswered post.

    I'd rather be lost at the lake than found at home.

    There is a package called msttcorefonts, available
    for free from Microsoft. It gives you a number of the most
    common Microsoft fonts.

    installing msttcorefonts - openSUSE Forums

    Well, if you didn't figure it out yet, it's indeed different between KDE versions.

    But in suse 11.1 you will find it in start menu (below left) and personal settings (configure desktop).
    You will find a multitude of options and settings.
    First in look&feel and appearance.
    You will find fonts, the type and size and in which desktop item they are.
    In color you can do a lot with colors and backgrounds.
    I think much more than you can handle.

    But just look around in personal settings, there is a lot to see.
    And to configure to your needs.

    At last, right mouseclick on your desktop and in desktop settings you can also do some things.
    But remember, always right mouseclick on an item to see what is beneath it.
