Font problem with KDE apps running under gnome


Hi,

I use several KDE apps, such as MadMan and k3b under gnome, but when I do so the fonts come out too big and just look terrible. All my other apps look great with small, clear high res fonts.

How can I make sure that these other apps toe the line?!

Thanks,

KDE apps take their font and antialiasing settings from the values set in the KDE control centre
Code:
kcontrol
The settings are actually stored in various XML files somewhere under ~/.kde/ but it's a lot easier to edit them through kcontrol.

Searching on kde.org suggests it's in kdebase.

Thanks a lot! Installed the kdebase package and all its dependancies, fired up kcontrol and was able to change the font size. Now all my apps look great!

Thanks again, that was really bugging me..
