unusable desktop kde


Hi all

I am using OpenSuse 12.1 and KDE.
My monitor is a Sony E500 multiscan 20" and to fill it I have to run at 1600x1200.

Problem is the fonts are so small that it's impossible to read them.

How can I make them larger please?

It is OK on terminal kate et al as I can configure them individually.

Any help on this would be appreciated

Cheers Dave

Hello,

Might be under the theme settings, but you can control the overall system font within the global settings. You just need to increase the font size, and that is all.

Cheers,

Josh
