Whenever I set some font settings in these two web browsers, and apply them; they revert back to other fonts. The reason for this behavior is not known to me. How to set the required fonts and not allow these two browsers to change them on their own.
When I am in the middle of reading a post in Akgregator and I decide I need larger characters, I press [Ctrl [+]] to increase font size. This increases the characters displayed but also displaces my vertical reading position so that I have to scroll to the text I have been reading.
I'm running OpenSUSE 11.2 on my Acer Aspire One with a 9 inch LCD. I have configured the monitor in Sax2 to reflect the size and 1024x600 resolution, and as a result the desktop fonts are all sized correctly.
However, the fonts on the KDM log-in screen are too large, and I'd like to reduce them if possible. Looking in the KDE Control Center, I tried using the Login Manager utility to adjust the KDM theme, but any changes I made seemed to have no effect i.e. changing the font size, or even the overall theme itself, still resulted in KDM using the default green OpenSUSE theme with large fonts.
Does anyone know, therefore, how to adjust the KDM font size or DPI in OpenSUSE 11.2?
From inside my bash script, is there a way to increase my Xdialog default font size? If not, is there any other way to do it? I found a commercial program using Xdialog with instructions on increasing the font size, but they did not say how they did it. But, it does mean it can be done:[URL]...
I am writing a program in C to create a GUI application using GTK 2. My actual program is quite large, so I am using a modified version of the sample program from GNOME library for trial. I wish to increase the font size, and I have using PangoFontDescription. I have made that section of the code bold and italic below for quick reference to the code that affects fonts. But it does not make any difference. I am compiling the C file using gcc. The code is as follows(hello.c):

I have fedora 13 set up on a HP6715S laptop. Runlevel 3 is a problem, because the capital letters are the size of full stops. Reading a little, I can try a grub vga setting, but I am not keen as my screen is 1200x800 and X cannot set it otherwise, so I doubt grub could. There's KMS for radeon cards, and the kernel can do what it likes. The biggest font supplied with fedora is sun12x22, which doesn't even have a euro sign. I gather I can go to a height of 32. Anyone know of larger consolefonts, or a wheeze to double the size of one of the others, e.g. lat9w-16? setfont-h32 increases height, but not zoom, so it's like a double spaced console.
I just installed openSUSE 11.3 (Gnome). I am using Korean language, but I don't want to make Korean language as my default language. So I installed Korean lang as secondary language. It works well.But the problem is Korean font. Actually BEFORE installing the language, the font look much nicer. But as soon as I installed the language, the font became ugly.Even if I uninstal the language, the font still remains the same (ugly). Where is the font setting for other languages stored? It would be nice if I can set default fonts for Korean language manually.
I installed Fedora 15/Gnome 3 because I liked the Universal Access Settings widget for controlling the appearance of my living room computer attached to my TV. It should (when it becomes more stable) make it easy to zoom in on the screen when I'm on the couch. There is also a Large Text setting that allows me to toggle between normal text size and perhaps 125% text size.
I'd like to set that value to about 200%, but don't see how to do it. dconf-editor didn't seem to have a way. gnome-tweak-tool has a way to make all fonts bigger or smaller but I want to easily switch between normal text size when I'm sitting close and large text from the UAS. Screwing around with gnome-tweak-tool would require me to be up-close. It looks like UAS is controlled by /usr/share/gnome-control-center/ui/uap.ui, but it is a wickedly complex xml file & I don't know what to edit. Is there a per user way to change the behavior?
After Buying a Router I have Internet connection to Ubuntu. I used to surf the net using Ubuntu when I was using my Mobile to Get Internet. But after Getting ADSL I switched to Windows because My Past Modem didn't work with Ubuntu. So I bought a router.
Now My Problem is Ubuntu fonts are Smaller and bit different in Web Browsers. I have both Firefox and Cromium in Ubuntu.
Now I want is to make Ubuntu Browser Fonts make similar to Windows 7 or Any Windows version.
I installed a Gnome Theme that Works like Windows 7 theme but it didn't change the Browser fonts so I removed it.
I'm a student in a linux class and we just installed fedora. so far it's nice except that the work we do is in the CLI which I can barely see because it's so small on the screen! I've been squinting at the screen for a little while now but it's just proving to give me more of a headache and hurt my eyes than anything. Anyone know how to change the font size so that I can actually see the work I'm doing?
No matter what I do with system settings I cannot change the font size or type of font in Firefox and Thunderbird - other programs as well. Is there somewhat to change this? The fonts are too small and I have vision problems. I know I can hit ctrol ++ but with other distros I can change the deflt font size for the system. I am using openSUSE 11.3 and like it very much except for this lack of a feature.
I am running Ubuntu 10.04. When I first installed it, the virtual terminals had a good font size. After a few weeks, I set the visual appearance setting to normal (in the gui desktop). Doing this required me to install third party graphics drivers from nvidia. in installed fine, and my gui desktop still functions as I would expect, however, all of the virtual terminals now have a much larger font size, as does the ubuntu boot logo.
When I run xterm from the command line, there seems to be some errors:
Code: $ xterm & $ Warning: Cannot convert string "nil2" to type FontStruct xterm: cannot load font -misc-fixed-medium-r-semicondensed--13-120-75-75-c-60-iso10646-1 Then I press both the Ctrl and right mouse key, options are popup with font sizes of 'Default',
I was wondering how to change the xterm font size and may be the font itself. Also we go to tty1 when we press Ctrl+Alt+f1 , f3 and so on. Is there any way I can change that too and maybe change the colour of the font and the size of it. I did change the resolution once in ubuntu with startup manager. I'm using fedora 14.
I installed Ubuntu on my Netbook. I like it to use the Terminals. I don't mean the "GUI-Terminal-Emulators", I mean those I can open with "Alt+FX". There the font size is to big, so I changed it with "dpkg-reconfigure console-setup". It worked, but after restart the font were "reseted" and big. Is there a way to permanently change the font size?
I have just installed Ubuntu 10.10, the latest version, into my computer. But I notice that the font is small when browsing the web using Firefox. I need to have a bigger font because of my shortsightedness.
I want to change gedit font size and color scheme as root but the font is locked out and when selecting a color scheme I get the following error: ** (gedit:2562): CRITICAL **: gedit_prefs_manager_set_string: assertion `gconf_client_key_is_writable ( gedit_prefs_manager->gconf_client, key, NULL)' failed How can I get around this?
Is it possible to change the grub 2 menu font size? i have a higher resolution and the entries have very tiny and hard to read. I know i could lower my current resolution but i don't want to decrease the text and picture quality.
Directory names and certain filenames appear in a bold font that gets cut off on the right side of each string of text. This issue only arose after upgrading to 10.04 LTS. I can not figure out why the upgrade would change the terminal font settings in such a way.
I recently installed an ATI graphics card driver (fglrx) and ran the aticonfig --initial program/option, which makes the necessary changes to xorg.conf for the user.
My original problem was that all of my font sizes were changed (far too small to even read). I found a temporary way around this by simply increasing the sizes in the gnome appearance properties, but the problem is there is no option to change the size of text that appears in editable fields. For example, simple text-line entry widgets in various applications appear very small (as well as the default text size in icedove mail). Trying to use openoffice.org Writer or Calc also gives the same results. It seems directly related to the sizes of "editable fields" (things like my text editor - gedit- appear to be fine, as well as my terminal). I'm guessing this could have something to do with my xorg.conf, but I've looked through the file and don't know what to change, or where else I could look. If it helps at all, I have most of my font sizes now (in gnome) set to 14, but they appear as 12.
I'm not sure exactly why this is happening, but I need some help in getting some of this text readable again. Please see the attached screenshot of a blank Calc spreadsheet, and it might shed some light on this. You might also notice that in the screenshot, the default font size is 10, but if I change this to 12, and then load it on say, a Windows computer, the text will appear to be much larger than a 12. I'll also include my xorg.conf, in case that has anything to do with it.
I'm trying to do is protect the computer against housemates. The standard procedure I do with Lenny:
1. Password protect BIOS.
2. In BIOS, always boot from hard drive. Disable booting from any other device such as USB or CD-ROM.
3. Password protect Grub (v1) using the "password --md5 $1$9MuaA/$5TDLgvmcEiCWNr5W9VaMK1" syntax in my menu.lst file.
With the above precautions in place, [I think] the only way to gain root access to the system is to take the case lid off and proceed to do stuff physically (like set jumpers and/or take out the hard drive). Am I correct? My reasoning for this is, the computer boots -> must boot from HD -> must load Grub -> must go to default menu item since others are protected, and cannot command prompt in Grub without password.
Anyhow, In Squeeze, I was a bit disappointed to find out, after doing a bit of Google-research, that Grub v2 (which is standard on Squeeze now) does not easily support password protecting the Grub menu. Am I correct? Will this issue perhaps be addressed in the Squeeze final release? Is this feature dumb anyways because the Grub password is of no use (i.e. my paragraph above is complete horseradish)?
Another thing I would like to do is change the console font and size back to something more "normal" or "classic", not some crazy tiny font that's only found in totally bleeding edge Linux distrubutions <gasp!>. I found that the Squeeze console font (e.g. when I type Ctrl+Alt+F1) is wicked tiny. I wanna change it to "normal". Grub v2 password and console font config?
I have a few VMs set up with virtualbox but am finding that I'm now running out of space in some of the VMs. I really don't fancy creating new VMs and reinstalling and configuring them so is there an easy way to increase the size of the virtual disks?
As can be observed above, I have used almost 70% of the available partition space with only 1.7 GB remaining. I have plans to install Microsoft Office 2007 on Wine and I know that 1.7 GB is not enough for the installation. I don't mind reducing the size of my Windows partitions in order to increase the size of the root.
I have done it quite often. Inserted and run the computer from a live CD so that the hard drive is not mounted an changed the partitions. It worked on the old reiserfs when I wiped the windows partition on my laptop to increase the space, it worked on ext3 partitions. Now I resized the swap partition and reduced the NTFS partition on my desktop - no problem. But it does not increase the ext4 partition. No error message it just does not do it. I tried several times with the suggested maximal setting, with a custom setting, etc. It just does not change size. Just for interest I booted into Suse11.0 live CD and tried from there. There I get the answer cannot resize partition as the file system does not allow resizing. Is something wrong with the system or does the partitioner not work with ext4?
I'm running OpenSuSE 11.3, upgraded from 11.1, with the Nvidia video driver. The font size for Yast, Firefox, and several other things is too small. I've tried changing it using the Appearance section of Personal Settings. That changes the font size in some contexts such as the window titles and task manager, but not in all contexts. In Firefox I've tried something similar, but it doesn't affect the font used in the tabs, function bar on the top, etc. The font in those parts of Firefox is the same as the one in Yast. So there's some other font setting around, but I haven't been able to find it. I've tried Google and SDB, but have no success searching there.
After last updating I'm coming across some issues mainly about web browsing: I get different text fonts than usual (on Google search for example, but also on some web sites) and small fonts appear with a sort of halo... Moreover I get some difficulties in video streaming: after a while it stops with no apparent reason...
