Font size of the input of the login screen

Postby NL-AJR » Sun Apr 14, 2013 3:17 am

Hey all,

I have been playing around with Linux Mint for a year now. I have a laptop with Mint 13 and a desktop with Mint 14. Both have Nvidia cards and both run proprietary drivers. However with the desktop I have the following problem that no one else seems to have. I first used it without the Nvidia card and it worked fine, installed the Nvidia card and the proprietary drivers and the system runs great, however the font size of what ever I type in the login screen has changed to a huge size. So whenever I type in my name or my password it huge (does not fit inside the box at all). I have searched the net and this forum and could not find anyone with similar problems.

I know that this is vague and you probably need more information, but I am strictly an amateur and have no idea how to fix this. Any suggestions are welcome.

have a look in 'start-up manager'
- menu - administration - startUP-manager

reset the setting in there.
