System Font is HUGE in LM7 KDE on eeepc 900HA

Postby dredgman » Tue Sep 01, 2009 8:30 pm

I changed the system wide font settings in system settings, reduced it to deja vu sans size 7 (although it looks like a 10-12pt font), and it looks gorgeous in every program except for wallet manager, Kate, synaptic, and mint install/update (and perhaps others, but that's all I've noticed so far) where the font looks to be at least 14pt - a big problem having such a small screen. Any ideas why these programs still have fonts that are ridiculously big?

They are the settings under the root user, so won't change under your user login. Not sure, but I remember reading a posting here in the KDE forum with instructions to change them to match your fonts and themes. Can't find it right now, but I'll try to locate it, or you can search or browse for it?

I logged in as the root user and changed the fonts in the same way I had before and here's the weird thing, they are the size that I want them to be under the root user desktop, but they are still huge on my desktop.

*EDIT* Nevermind, that seems to have done the trick.

*EDIT* I spoke too soon. Certain programs are fixed, like MintInstall, but wallet manager and the notification that pops up when my wireless connects are still gigantified.
