http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...1&d=1235082559

I am using XFCE, in Slackware 12.2.

I like the menu's font in the apps of XFCE.

But when I open a program from KDE, the KDE app have menu's font from KDE. I do not like the fonts of kde.

So, I want to change the font's menu of KDE apps, in XFCE.

Some one can help me?

Hi!
Every GUI application is created in some way,meaning that creator could have included the possibility that application fonts could be changed or not,usually they can but sometimes they can't.That's way sometimes when you run a Gnome or a KDE application under the XFCE it looks different then the applications under the original DE.If you haven't tried to change system wide fonts,you can do it and see if your problem will be solved,if it's not then the only way to change things the way you want is to modify the source code of the application/s.
