Re: Controlling Fonts and Font Sizes in GTK Applications

I have a Debian system hooked up to an HDTV. I'm using KDE as the DE and have had no problem adjusting the fonts used by KDE apps so they are big enough to see from across the room, but I'm stuck with itty-bitty fonts for Firefox and other GTK based apps. When I search with apt-cache, I find only gxset, which doesn't allow for setting fonts (at least not in Lenny). I've tried Google, but if it's obvious, I'm not using the right terms.

What can I use to set the default fonts and font sizes for GTK programs?

Found it, the round-a-bout way. Instead of trying to control GTK directly, I used the engine that forces GTK apps to use KDE fonts and once that was set up, a GTK control applet showed up in KControl and the GTK fonts were the sizes specified for KDE apps. Still can't find an app that sets GTK font sizes directly -- if someone knows of one, it'd be nice to know what it is, if only just for the record.
