Dear group - I have just installed a Sid box supposed to run only X and
Galeon. I found that the default install leves me with rather large
fonts for the applications.
I recall having solved this before by exchanging the FontPath for 100dpi
and 75dpi in XF86Config. Now I have tried this again without success.
I have noticed a new FontPath on top of the config file:
That'll be the X-font server.
Changing the 100dpi/75dpi fonts around is the answer but as you're
running an x-font server, you need to edit it's configuration file to do
The config file is /etc/X11/fs/config and you need to look for a line
starting 'catalogue =' - this is a list of font paths in the order it
uses them. Remember to restart the font server (xfs) as well as X itself.
I suppose this has something to do with it (in fact I am sure, if I
comment that line, things work as expected).
Can someone point me to the mechanism for changing the font size here?
Thanks a lot!
You could list all you fonts in the font path, both the 75 dpi and 100
dpi ones. Then change the dpi setting of the xserver by editing
/etc/X11/xinit/xserverrc and altering the value after the -dpi flag.
Don't know if that will solve your problem. Just an idea.
