openoffice menu font size in Redhat 8.0
using redhat 8.0, most applications run well and appear normal.
openoffice (and star office) opens with the font-size in menus
>10x too big, document fonts are also very large. Nearly
impossible to use OO menus since each expanded menu item
fills the screen (a 292x229mm CRT).
based on earlier searches I modified font path and Monitor
DisplaySize in /etc/X11/XF86Config; but after reboot this seems
to have no effect on any application (e.g. tried doubling DisplaySize, no change).
Tried changing the default FontPath from "unix/:7100" to a
list of fonts available in /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/, that also
seemed to have no impact on anything!
The Redhat XF86Config file contains this comment:
# By default, Red Hat 6.0 and later now use a font server independent of
# the X server to render fonts.
Haven't found any further clues to this in Redhat documention. Is it relevent here? If so, where should I look?
Many thanks in advance!
