I have a Mac Powerbook G4. About two months ago my font sizes changed on Firefox browser. I have searched and tried many firefox apps to fix the problem, but NONE of them work.All I want to do is go back to my old firefox with normal size fonts ALL THE TIME, ALWAYS.
I'm running Hardy 8.04.. Once in a while when I boot up my system, all of my fonts are different - everything is very large. If I go into the screen resolution, I have no choices higher than 800x600. If I restart the system, there is a good chance that the screen resolution will go back to normal. what I can do to fix it?
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 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.
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?
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?
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.
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've just installed Ubunter Server 9.04 (after having installed 9.10, having problems with it, and uninstalling it). Mostly, 9.04 is working well so far, but for one nuisance: the font is huge.
Well, okay, not huge, but big. On my other machine, running Ubuntu 9.04 desktop, same size monitor, I have the resolution set to 1440x900 which gives me 46 lines on the CLI (with the window maximized, but not full-screen). On the server machine, however, I'm getting only 25 lines -- and there's not even a window title-bar, menu bar, or panels taking up any of the landscape.
So my question is this: Not having a GUI nor any of the associated display-management software, how can I set the screen resolution or otherwise get my display font smaller, using the CLI?
I know, the question seems idiotic, but I accidentally changed all the 'theme fonts' to Sans 12 (a keyboard shortcut handy for switching between different display sizes) I don't know if I'm getting the font or just the size wrong but it doesn't look quite right anymore...
checking the 'correct' font name(s) and size(s) in the appearance settings under 'Fonts'.
When zooming to 100% in listview the font gets huge, but only in the listview panel (see image). Where to reconfigure this to normal behaviour (I'd like the 100% fontsize to be the same as in the treeview in the left panel). I had this behaviour already with the previous relase of Ubuntu, and upgrading to 10.04 did not solve the problem.
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.
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 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 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.
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 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 have changed my monitor from crt to lcd and find the fonts to be a little out of focus,
so far i have achieved native resolution of 1280x1024 in gnome which is great! i have configured grub by adding the vga=xxx appropraite for native resolution of my monitor which is great !.........but herein lay the problem, everything is so small and stuck up in the left corner , so small that i cant read it very well.
how do i increase the font sizes at cmd prompt without changing the resolution ? dare i say ........in windows i would increase the DPI , how do i achieve this in centos ?
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.
