very small font in xchm


hi,

i installed xchm on my debian system with apt-get install xchm.
but the font is ugly and VERY small

i already installed the msttcorefonts package a long time ago.
i also played with the font settings in xchm but i can't get it decent.

i uploaded a screenshot so you can see what i mean.

as you can see the menu in the left is very small and kinda ugly.
i hope anyone has a solution to this

grtz

Try installing one or all of these packages:
Code:
xfonts-100dpi-transcoded
xfonts-75dpi-transcoded
xfonts-base-transcoded
I thought that was the problem. After installing these fonts, you should get normal fontsize in xmms too.

you were right dopehouse
thx!

now the fonts are much larger and readable.
do you maybe also know how i can choose one of the msttcorefonts in that window?
i have the package installed, but i can't choose fonts like verdana or arial.

in firefox i can choose verdana and arial


grtz
