How can I tell what it is, and how to adjust it in KDE? If you run KDM, see /etc/kde3/kdm/Xservers There will be a line like: :0 local@tty1 /usr/X11R6/bin/X -dpi 100 -nolisten tcp Substitute 100 with 81 for your monitor. If you use XDM, the file to look at is /etc/X11/xdm/Xservers As pointed out elsewhere, also ensure that the DisplaySize line in the Monitor section of your /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 or other relevant X configuration file is consistent with this, if it exists. Do note that some applications, like Mozilla Firefox, do not honour this value but have internal options to set DPI. > > I just have a personal preference of sans over serif fonts, so I > > always change them during my initial setup.

My personal preference by far would be the fonts of the ttf-freefont package, particularly FreeSans. I'm not sure whether or not they meet the qualifications for universal adoption as defaults, though. Can anyone provide insight? > Ooops, I sent this to the user instead of list by mistake ..
