Text on windows and buttons went super large...

Postby Windreaver » Mon Feb 13, 2012 5:07 pm

I installed Mint 12 KDE yesterday after having tried the Gnome version. After installation I installed the Nvidia recommended driver as I have always done with no problems, and the text on all buttons and interfaces went super large after restart. I open a browser and the text within the webpage is normal but the window and buttons are ginormous. Didnt have this problem with Gnome. Hints on how to fix this?

Thanx :)

Have you tried changing the font size in System Settings -> Applications Appearance -> Fonts?

You set or it set a default DPI too high. Go on Font Settings and tick "force DPI" set it to 96 or lower and check if it gets back to normal.
