KDE font problem...


I'm having a problem with my fonts in Mozilla 1.7.3. The fonts in the URL bar and the bookmark bar area are so small they are hard to read. The fonts everywhere else are fine. I've played around with the font options in kde fonts and nothing worked. The fonts work fine in Gnome. I don't get why the fonts are working fine everywhere else? Like i said, it's just in the top URL bar and bookmark bar place. I've tried downloading a new version of Mozilla with xft with no success.

I've been doing all kinds of stuff here. When i try to install with ./mozilla-installer with root it get this....

box@LinuxBox420:~/mozilla-installer$ su
Password:
root@LinuxBox420:/home/box/mozilla-installer# ./mozilla-installer
Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib: No protocol specified


Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display: :0
root@LinuxBox420:/home/box/mozilla-installer#

It works with the GTK+XFT version, but the fonts in the URL bar and bookmark bar are still unreadable, everything else in the page is fine.

And i moved my 100dpi fonts to the top line in /etc/X11/xorg.config and made no difference..

FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/100dpi/"
FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/local/"
FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc/"
FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/100dpi/:unscaled"
FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi/:unscaled"
FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/Speedo/"
FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/Type1/"
FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/TTF/"
FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/cyrillic/"
FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi/"


really getting a headache over this!

Mozilla is not a KDE app, so changing fonts in KDE won't help you.

Go to the Mozilla site, and look for docs on customizing Moz. Two files to look for which describe how to change Moz menu fonts, etc, are userChrome.html and userContent.html. They refer to the Moz .css (cascading style sheet) files.

Finally! After googleing all night and day i found i had to create a .gtkrc-2.0 file with the text gtk-font-name = "Arial 14" in it and it worked. No more unreadable fonts in mozilla.
