Fedora :: How To Change The Font Size

Nov 5, 2009

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?

OpenSUSE :: Change KDM Font Size On 11.2?

Nov 16, 2009

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?

SUSE :: Can't Change Font Size

Aug 1, 2010

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.

Ubuntu :: Change Font Size In Tty Terminal?

Jun 20, 2011

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.

General :: Any Way To Permanently Change Terminal Font Size

Jul 10, 2011

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?

Debian Installation :: Squeeze - Change Grub Password And Console Font Size?

Nov 5, 2010

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?

Debian :: Change Font Size In Editable Fields - Borked After Fglrx Install

Sep 10, 2010

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.

Fedora :: Cannot Use Gedit As Root

Mar 19, 2011

I'm trying to use gedit as root to edit some config files, but everytime I try to open it, I get this mess. I had a similar issue with debian, and someone solved it by telling my to run gksu nautilus. I tried to run gksu gedit, but apparently that doesn't work on Fedora. I really like Fedora, and I want to stick with it, but if I can't edit these files, I'm going to have issues.

Fedora :: How To Reset Login Font To Reasonable Size

Jul 27, 2010

I am running Fedora 13 x86_64, and have been using the nouveau display driver.I have just installed the Nvidia driver using the easyLife application. Having already set up most things as I like, I only set easyLife to install the Truetype fonts and the Nvidia driver.the initial re-start was a bit nasty, the login screen fonts were huge and the desktop font also huge. I did manage to reset the desktop font size via System> Preferences> Appearance>Fonts>Details. The resolution was set somewhere in excess of 300, and I brought that back to 96 which has put the desktop back to normal.The login font size remains very large, and I have followed advice to set the DPI in the monitor section of xorg.conf 'Option "DPI" "96 x 96", but that hasn't had any effect.Does anyone know how to reset the login font to a reasonable size?

Fedora :: Different Behaviour When Invoking Gedit From Root Terminal

Nov 27, 2009

Every time I invoke gedit from the root terminal I get:-

[AnOther@FSLServer ~]$ su
Password:
[root@FSLServer AnOther]# gedit

(gedit:6447): EggSMClient-WARNING **: Failed to connect to the session manager: None of the authentication protocols specified are supported

followed by 33 occurrences of:-

GConf Error: Failed to contact configuration server; some possible causes are that you need to enable TCP/IP networking for ORBit, or you have stale NFS locks due to a system crash. See [URL]. (Details - 1: Failed to get connection to session: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.)gedit opens fine but it seems really odd. My exposure to linux is not vast but this has never happened before Fedora12 It doesn't happen if I just use the terminal as an ordinary user.It also has nothing to do with the Bad & Ugly Gstreamer plugins as this happened from the moment the system was installed from the DVD and before the plugins were loaded even after removing them and rebooting I still get the ream of GConf errors if I start Gedit after su,

Fedora :: Can't Run GEdit And Other Tools From A Terminal By Logging In As Root?

Jul 20, 2011

Everyone is wondering why we can't run gEdit and other tools from a terminal by logging in as root(e.g"su-"), I understand that by making changes they are trying to force us as users of Linux to learn better habits that are more secure, but the issues are driving people nuts!

I for one really like being able to log as root and open gEdit to make drive changes without having to login as root, I would normally still have access to all my things like email etc. So changing Linux to force everyone to not use tools like gEdit as root is becoming more of an inconvenience than they realize, there must be a safe way to do this!
