two quick q's


hello there..

1.how do i configure my mouse sensitivity in fluxbox?
2.why are the fonts in mozilla are so small(including the menus) whereelse the fonts in netscape are normal?i checked the preferences for both and under the fonts tab, netscape has way more fonts than mozilla(which has bout 8-10 fonts).do i need to tell mozilla to read the fonts somewhere?

btw im using slackware 9, fresh installed yesterday.

1 - set the resolution value in your XF86Config in the pointers section.

2 - no idea.

2 - At the Fonts For: dropdown box, have u tried User Defined?

Anyway, you should first run fc-cache to all your fonts dir... eg. let's say you have a bunch of fonts in /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/TTF... type this (as root):

/usr/bin/X11/fc-cache -fv /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/TTF
