Nvidia works but font too small to read

Postby l440mag on Mon May 06, 2013 5:05 pm

I used the additional drivers app and things look fine except the font is too small. I can fix it for some things through settings. but won't work for update manager, synaptic or even the login screen.
I've included the read out I got in hopes that it might help.

Any help will be appreciated, even if it's to go back to the original driver that Mint 14 installed. I did try deactivating the nvida driver but the the res was too low.
