how to change menu font under KDE


Hello,
I am using KDE on RHEL4 .

When I change fonts etc in KDE it chage the font of KDE application like konquerer.

But it does not affect other application fonts like Firefox , gftp etc.

How can I change fonts of these applications which are not belong to kde packages.

You can specify the font you want to use for GTK applications such as Firefox and gFTP by using the file caled ~/.gtkrc-2.0. The format is like this:
Code:
gtk-font-name = "Bitstream Vera Sans 9"
If the file does not exist, you can create it manually.

You can install gtkqt-engine and all your gtk apps will look like KDE apps and use KDE font settings.
