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.

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.

Hello. I've just installed the linux NVIDIA drivers and all went well. However, when I logged back into X the fonts became smaller. So I went to the KDE control center and enlarged all the fonts. However, some apps which are not KDE related (in my case, apps like Gaim, gFTP and X-Chat) still have smaller fonts than usual, and I'd really like to get them bigger as they were before. Can anyone tell me how to do this?
Thanks in advace.

Are there any other solutions to fix the small font problem? I used that hidden folder technique that was mentioned before but for some reason it stops working after a while. Last time it didn't work I just deleted it and made it again and things were working again but the fonts are small again. I haven't done any playing around with any drivers or anything that I can think of that might have possibly changed things, actually haven't done anything really techy at all on it in a while. Any enlightenment would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.
I installed my NVIDIA drivers, but everything went fine for me. Did you compile your own kernel interface or did you get one from the NVIDIA FTP site? I am not sure if this is the problem, but I just installed from the installer and compiled my own kernel interface using the program that comes with the installer.
I did the same thing. I just let nvidia make me one. Things are back to normal now, I think all I did was save the file again? I don't think I deleted it, I think I just opened it and saved it. Hmm. Must be getting old or I would be able to remember for sure ^^
