someone here must know, please people, at least an "I have no idea" would do.

pleeeeeaase

to graphically see my problem, click on the link below:
http://bloka.homelinux.org/xawtv-bigfont.jpg
i'm hosting it on my box, which has a very bad connection, but the file is only 11K big, so it should load under a minute

you can see the menu with the tv programs in xawtv, and you can clearly see that font is way too big.

Maybe investigate messing with the X font server and fonts installed on your system. QT and GKT apps should be changeable from KDE and GNOME display configurers.

the problem is that xawtv doesnt use neitherQT norGTK, as I stated above. And I have no idea what "investigate messing with the X font server and fonts installed" means. As far as I know all the fonts are not corrupted.

i have no idea why I didn't do this before

I just started xawtv from the console and this is what I get:
Code:
WarnThis is xawtv-3.88, running on Linux/i686 (2.4.20)
WARNING: Your X-Server has no DGA support.
WARNING: couldn't find framebuffer base address, try manual
         configuration ("v4l-conf -a <addr>")
ing: Cannot convert string "-*-ledfixed-medium-r-*--39-*-*-*-c-*-*-*" to type FontStruct
aparently the font size is 39. So how do I make it smaller?
