Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Hi, I just recently updated to Mandrake 7.2 and KDE 2. I love the way it worked and was ready to pretty much give up on windows, until I got this really really annoying problem. Suddenly most fonts became incredible huge. I can't find a way to make them smaller, I have tried with all the normal places to choose fonts and they didn't have any effect. These fonts are so huge, that it makes KDE pretty much unusable since nothing will fit on the screen.
I would really appreciate any help I can get.
I have messed with it some more and I can make it do it when I change the country that it thinks I reside in. If I leave it at default, I think it behaves. If I change it to United States, the fonts get big. So I've decided to not change that and see if it works well for awhile that way. Thanks.
Ok, it did it again and I didn't change anything. It just decided to suddenly make the fonts huge again (as far as I can tell). I'm getting pissed off at it. So what I keep doing, is just creating myself a new user everytime it does it. If anyone can help me or point me in the right direction, I'd appreciate it.
There is nothing that seams relevant to this problem in the syslog. My config file is as follows (without all the comments).
client-limit = 4
clone-self = off
catalogue = /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc:unscaled,
# in 12 points, decipoints
default-point-size = 120
# 100 x 100 and 75 x 75
default-resolutions = 100,100,75,75
# how to log errors
use-syslog = on
# deferglyphs makes a tremendous usability difference for CJK fonts
deferglyphs = 16
