tiny font with fc2 login screen


I have an odd situation with the X login screen. A fresh install of FC2 produced a login screen with "super tiny font" such that it is hardly readable. It's only my familiarity with the icons, which are normal sized, that would, for example, allow me to click on the "reboot" icon.

The funny thing is that all the font after logging in is o.k., but during bootup, it also is way too small, i.e., the little messages that Fedora gives you if you opt for not seeing the details, like, "setting up disks" or whatever it is...

Anybody have any ideas on how to change this font? Or better yet, why a default install would produce this situation? FC1 never had that problem.

Hmm...

Did you try changing the default Login Screen? that might help, i was a former Fedora Core 2 user till i went SuSE. If you change the login screen, which should be in the Start Menu, and in system or preferences, the app is called Login Screen (Simple enough) in there you got all the options. Hope this helped

I tried that, just now, but it's the same tiny font with Bluecurve or Happy Gnome...seems like you ought to be able to see where that font is defined somewhere...
