hello and menubar fontsize


hallo everybody,
this is the first posting I send in a forum.
I use linux since a long time. I install a distribution and use the operating-system at home and for my work.
Last week i switched back to SuSe(9.2). DELL-Precision Laptop, (graphic-card: Quadro4 550 GoGL)
Now my first question:
How I can change the font-size in the menu-bar of the kde-applications (konsole).
For firefox i found advices in the forum and edited the file:
.mozilla/firefox/j935siz6.default/chrome/userChrome.css

thank you
ebn

Hi ebn, welcome to lq. Try the kde control center, choose appearance & themes, then fonts, then menu. You should be able to choose a different font by using the choose button to the far right.
good luck.

Question menubar fontsize

Thank You for this recommendation.
I try this but i see any result.
in: kde control center/appearance & themes/fonts the font-name was Sans Serif.
under choose I increase only the font-size not the font-type without any result.
How I can check if the "Sans Serif"-font is installed?
xlsfonts -l >listing_xlsfonts produce a list with 2794 lines, but the string "Sans Serif" not appears.
Thanks
ebn

Probably needed to restart the x server or refresh the desktop. No need to be sorry, I'm glad you're sorted.
good luck.
