Font Size & Expo issue

Postby cottfcfan on Tue Dec 24, 2013 7:12 am

I have just installed Mint 16 Cinnamon to play with. To be honest I have mainly been using Kubuntu since Gnome 3, but fancied a change.
2 issues have initially surfaced. 1st, having a 22" Screen I always change my font size to 14. Problem, only certain applications take note of the font change, the rest stick with font size 9. How do I resolve this?
The 2nd issue is the Expo effect. (The top left hand corner that reveals workspaces). The effect is so grainy & jerky & not smooth at all like the rest of the desktop. Is there anyway I can change the effect to see if it helps?
Thanks in advance.

Hi,

I don't know if this what you mean about the font size - but have a look at this thread:
http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=208&t=136846

For issue number 2 - I have no idea, sorry.

Thanks caribriz,

Adding those 3 files to my home folder resolved the problem.
I know cinnamon technology is quite new, but it seems like a long winded solution, to an obvious issue.
As for the 2nd issue I have deleted expo & use "workspace switcher" on the panel instead.

A suggestion - Suggest logging the issue here https://github.com/linuxmint/Cinnamon/issues for developer visibility.
Cheers,
