Google Chrome tab fonts are gigantic and I can't fix it...


Hello All.

The font on the tabs and the search bar of Google Chrome are way too big.
I am using Arch Linux.
Google Chrome uses GTK stuff, and I use KDE/QT (KDEmod). I have tried to change the fonts with both qtconfig (which didn't affect anything), and also installed lxappearance and try to change the font size, but it still didn't help at all.
The .desktop file in both /opt and /usr/shar/application didn't give any clues to this or options to change, either.

What do I do?

Thank you for any help!

{I've attached a screenshot of the problem} [By default the font is much smaller. I've used GC for quite a while now.]

Sorry for the double post here, but this is important.
I've tried
Code:
$ sudo pacman -Rn google-chrome-beta
Code:
# yaourt -S google-chrome-beta
To no Avail.

qtconfig reports GTK error(s).
Code:
[andrew@mynetbook ~]$ qtconfig
QWidget::setMinimumSize: (/QMdi::ControlLabel) Negative sizes (-1,-1) are not possible
QGtkStyle was unable to detect the current GTK+ theme.

(process:5297): Gtk-CRITICAL **: gtk_widget_style_get: assertion `GTK_IS_WIDGET (widget)' failed

... {about 20 of these show up} ...
But I do have a GTK theme?!

!! qtcurve and KDE system setting aren't helping either

EDIT: It's NOT Google Chrome. I found a font option and changed it, to no avail.

FIXED!

I set the DPI to 96 and everything worked out good.

When you say DPI, am I correct in assuming you mean DPI in KDE display settings?
