fluxbox with too big fonts.


Just like the subject says, the fonts in mozilla-firefox and gtetrinet are extremely big.

I tried to google for something that might fix it, but couldn't find anything. Now I'm hoping that someone here can help me :-)

Does fluxbox have anything similar to gnome-control-centre?

Not that I'm aware of. I just run gnome-control-center as soon as I start fluxbox. Just clicking on Fonts resets them to what I want.

If I don't have to exit fluxbox, it'll stay that way.

I would have to install gnome to get gnome-contro-center (i think), and I don't want that :-P

Add "Xft.dpi: 96" (without quotes) to your ~/.Xresources and see if that helps.

You also need to log out and login again in order to see if the fonts have become any smaller.

No problem. Do "nano .Xresources", then write Xft.dpi: 96 and close nano. Now you have that file.
