Mint 14 Cinamon text size in mdm too small to see

Postby stantonworrier » Fri Dec 07, 2012 12:47 pm

Hi Guys
I am a relative noob. I have installed LM 14 cinamon and resolved the issue with mdm throwing me backout when I try to log in (install Nvdia drivers ) . However I am now unable to see the text entered in to the log in field as it is way too small.

My question is: how do I change the font size at the log in screen?

Menu>Administration>Login Window

Check Accessibility tab top entry "Allow users to change fonts is checked? or not?
Try each way as don't see an adjustment for font or know which system font is used for logon

I sympathize. It's my one beef. For me, it's the menu and Synaptic. Neither will enlarge no matter what I've done. Once I installed everything I use regularly and set up docks, I never look at either much anymore, so I'm less troubled. I haven't been annoyed with the sign-on, but I know it's tiny. It would be nice if the issue were uniformly resolved, I agree.

The frustrating thing is that I had the same issue with LM13 and found a post that pointed me in the right direction to resolve it I have looked for days now but can't find that oldpost :-(

When wanting better linux mint solutions use google with linux mint followed by required text to find more info.

If that isn't what you are looking for google linux mint and play on words to maybe come up with other results.
