But this will affect on fonts for both KDE and Gnome. I do not have problems when running Gnome Desktop the fonts have normal sizes. But when I run KDE Desktop and start some kind of GTK based application it shows small fonts in KDE.
Does font size change will affect only in KDE environment?
Or I missunderstood something
I guess I misunderstood. Sorry. I do not know how you can do it only in KDE. I use KDE only and do not switch back and forth between Gnome. You can of course adjust font size depending on what desktop manager you use, but that isn't a great solution.
I found an interesting package called gtk2-engines-gtk-qt. I just installed it and it makes my gnome applications look pretty uniform with the other applications in KDE. I'm not sure how it affects things in gnome. From the synaptic descruiption of the package:
theme engine using Qt for GTK+ 2.x
The GTK-Qt Theme Engine (also known as gtk-qt-engine) is a GTK 2 theme engine
that calls Qt to do the actual drawing. This makes your GTK 2 applications
look almost like real Qt applications and gives you a more unified desktop
Please note that this package is targeted at KDE users and therefore provides
a way to configure it from within KControl.
After I run gnome-control-center in KDE and just enter section of fonts without any changes the fonts become normal and all work fine. Thanks to m_yates. Thus even not applying any changes this load correct defaults for GTK applications
If I logout/login I have to run the fonts become small once more and I need to run gnome-control center one more time.
It seems to me that when you log into KDE it somehow doesn't load correct GTK libraries settings.
