Victory!


Finally (after two days of muddling through it) got both Arch and X installed on my machine. Installed the fluxbox window manager. I have a problem though, my fonts inside of windows are tiny. Any help you can give me would be appreciated, as Im getting a migraine.



EDIT: Just for S&G's, I decided to load up gnome. My fonts are much bigger in gnome, but my display in general is very fuzzy. I have an ATI AiW 9600 vid-card and a Samsung SyncMaster 760vTFT monitor.

Thanks again, ladies and gents.

If you are using KDE in Arch you can use the Control Center to adjust your fonts.
Follow these steps:
1. Click the K menu (nav bar on the bottom)
2.Click on Control Center ( a new screen will open)
3.Look for Appearance & Themes (expand by clicking on the + sign)
4. Click on Fonts ( a new side panel will open)
5. Choose the fonts and sizes that you like for your KDE environment

Hope this helps.

I think I figured it out. (I'm running fluxbox, BTW). When I looked at my xorg.conf, my vid driver didn't look right. So I went out and found the ATI driver and installed it. my display is 1000% better. hooray for Arch! All the customizability of Gentoo with none of the bullshat.
