OpenSUSE :: YAST TEXT SIZE - So Small Hardly To Read
Jan 25, 2010
I installed Suse 11.2 on my computer... i have 42" screen threw my HDMI output at 1360x768. now.. when i booted it up the first time.. .the text on everything was so small i could hardly read it... so i went and adjusted it threw my System settings by clicking on "Configure Desktop" changed everything to "Sans Serif 15"... BUT.... everything in YAST all the text is NOT readable... ANY ONE KNOW how to fix that..everything BUT yast is just fine...
I am running openSUSE 11.4 KDE 64bit. I found the default font in YAST, for example, in Bootloader and Software Management, is about 8-9 points which is too small to read. Why on earth does openSUSE set a tiny font size as default?
I did try Configure Desktop >Application Appearance, etc. as well as qtconfig in the terminal but these seem not to increase the font size to 12-14 points.
I'm looking for a programmable way to open an editor with a small window size. For example 60 columns and 3 lines. So I need an editor that can take its initial window size from command line args or environment variables, or possibly from an initial command that can be given on the command line.I've looked at documentation and experimented with gedit, gvim (and vi & vim), and nano and I don't think any of them can be controlled this way. Vi and its friends have a "window" option and also a "resize" command, both of which are described as setting the number of rows, but they don't change the graphical window size they just change the number of rows displayed in the window.
What does the red text in Yast mean? I installed a printer driver (Gutenprint 5.2.4) from here: software.opensuse.org: Download openSUSE 11.2) and when I view the installed packages in Yast, it shows up in red text. Why? (btw, that newer Gutenprint has the driver for my new Epson Artisan printer as well as my Samsung laser printer).
I'm having some difficulties with the comic strip widget that I use to keep me updated on Dilbert. It started out in ok-ish size, a little small, but readable. Now the entire strip takes up 3x3 cm, totally unreadable. Is there anyway to fix that?
The font size on Chromium for the URL and tabs is *far* too small. I went into the "Under the Hood" settings, but to no avail. How can I make this bigger? [URL] Also, the bookmarks bar seem to be inheriting system fonts, but it looks like that size is hard coded too. I love chromium but I need some accessibility here.
i was using eclipse in windows 7, th fonts are small so I can see the code good. But I want to use in Ubuntu so I setup. But here the font size is huge and windows are taking more space and I am unable to code.How to reduce the overall font size and make it small?
Does anyone know how to change the font size of the user interface elements of the chromium/chrome browser? I've searched around for a solution but only come up with how to change the font size of viewed sites. Just to be clear, I want to increase the font size of the tabs headings, bookmark menu etc, not the font size of the sites I'm viewing...Using chromium on lucid...
I'd like to know if anybody knows if is there a any small hardware board (I think non i386 architecture, maybe mips or arm) board suitable for using for linux routing systems (routing features + iptables).For example an small board with at least two ethernet interfaces capable to run an update version of Linux.May be something similar to microtik routerboards, but to run Linux within.
i am running now Windows 7 on a virtual machine.the windows of the VM remains small.when i resize the windows,, the desktop window of windows 7 remains the same size.is that normall?i would like to have a reasaneble windows size of the VM
I installed "Ubuntu 10.04 LTS - the Lucid Lynx" Amd_64 version on my dell vostro 1015. My screen resoultion is set to 1366*768(16.9) by default because the font size on web pages looks too small. I am not able to understand if it is font size too small or is it a resolution set too high. I am trying to fix this because I find very difficult to read web pages specifically. I tried to zoom in on firefox, but that is not permanent solution.
I want to decrease my screen resolution. I opened drop down and I find following:
None of the above resolution suits my laptop. The monitor type identified by Ubuntu says Laptop Monitor.
I've created a custom pclinunx os minime remaster for a friend. The only thing it lacks is a CD burning program. The problem is that I'm on dialup and can't use synaptic to install K3b. I don't know if I have the dev tools needed to compile it. Can you recommend me a light CD burner app with small size and few dependencies?
I am have upgraded from 9.04 to 9.10 in my laptop. After performing the reboot, the shell/console resolution went very high and the font size went too small. How to regain the old console shell resolution as in 9.04. I require this urgently as my laptop suffers the white screen problem. Switching between Ctrl+Alt+F6 and Ctrl+Alt+F7 I could get back the screen as the change in the resolution switches off and on the screen, so that I can negotiate with the white screen problem.
I just received a pennicle TV tuner card for my birthday so I installed mythtv. All I get when I start the frontend is a puke colored screen. There appears to be buttons, but they are so small you have to strain to see them. I had to set up a custom xorg-config file to get my resolution to work with my monitor because the nvidia driver couldn't properly detect the screen. According to some posts, that could be the problem but there were no solutions. I am at a loss as to what to do.
System information: Debian Squeeze on quad-core phenom (AMD64). Nvidia GeForce 6150SE nForce 430 graphics card using the Nvidia driver. Pinnace TV tunner using Conexant CX2388x chipset.
I just bought a new laptop with 1920x1080 resolution. I installed Ubuntu 11.04 via "wubi" just now, however everything in ubuntu is too small to keep my eye comfortable. I searched the web and forum and tried to enlarge those, but the solution was about Ubuntu front and folder icon only (change in "appreance", and "edit->preference"). The front and icon are still small in other applications, such as Google chrome, firefox. Note: the change of front size in chrome and firefox only changes those on the page, but not page background, not the size in tab and anything else.
I am using a 17" VGA monitor with 1024x768 resolution. With some tweaking, I'm pretty satisfied with GNOME Shell and its look. The only exception is the font of the text below the icons in Activities. On my monitor with this resolution, the text is just too small. As far as I know, it's the smallest text anywhere in the GUI. This is kind of an accessibility issue for me, since I do have a sight problem
I am looking for an editor to fill a specific request for a mostly non-computer person. He uses a computer to write manuals and other books for classes he teaches. He has come to ubuntu so he can more easily access updates, gimp, etc. than he felt he could in Windows.
1) I need a text editor that can be kept open without bogging things down, or can be loaded fast enough to make him think it is "TSR" (made usable in either case by a keypress on his MS internet antique keyboard)
2) Spell check as you type with editable dictionary (he can add words that will no longer show as incorrect). Ability to select spelling suggestions easily (left click a misspelled word is his current method).
3) Ability to highlight words that most of us would call syntax highlighting but for words having NOTHING to do with a programming language etc. I would call it ability to edit the keyword file(s) to make his own languages to be highlighted.
Already rejected: * anything with millions of complex keys to @#%$^%#$ remember that don't make sense * gedit * geany * kate * openoffice * treeline (though he does use it for other things) * tomboy (the cuss words there are an art form) * anything emacs/vi or similar (see #1 reject reason at top) * some gtk-nano clone he has no idea where he found
My friend has Ubuntu on his computer and he told me that one day when he turned It on all the text and Images on his computer are small. This even happens when he opens the Internet, not just on his desktop. Could this be an Ubuntu problem or could there be a setting that was accidentally switched?
I installed it on very old machine P3 1200Mhz and it works ok but I have problem with text mode because I have 75x132 aprocs. text on screen and I don't see what I type or system replay. Is there simple way to change to 25x80 or something with greater letters. I don't have GDI.Someone sad to me to do:sudo dpkg-reconfigure console-setupand it's does the job but when I restart system it's gone.
I am running Debian Lenny with Gnome and Metacity, and I've just installed the fglrx driver for my ATI card. I am running at a humble 1024x768 resolution, but I can barely read the text in many applications and on the desktop itself. Some programs are better than others, but for example, Icedove/Tbird's text is extremely small.
I encountered this thread: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...aviour-569624/ but wasn't sure if it was up to date or not.
I'm sure this topic has been covered plenty of times, but I'm new to setting up X/Window Manager/Desktop on Debian, and am not sure how to proceed. I've been using Linux for a couple of years but am relatively new to Debian (I started on Ubuntu - hence the being stumped by something like this).
I have an old scanner script that uses pamthreshold to create a small greyscale image of a text document. This program does not seem to be available in debian. Can anyone tell me how I can install it, or if there are any better alternatives available?
