Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I am running openSuse 12.2 KDE and wine 1.5.6, and trying to install MS Office 2007, but the fonts are too large. Not all fonts, just the EULA (see attachment). When I install it the icons and fonts of every msoffice application are too large as well (see attachment 2). If I increase dpi in winecfg it gets even bigger. If I then try to decrease it again, nothing happens.
From googleing I found that some Windows users have the same issue and it is solved by changing the Windows theme to classic and back. I tried installing a theme for wine but it made no difference.
I tried with a fresh prefix, default prefix and a prefix used for another application, it is always the same.
Normally I often zoom in and out with most applications, such as Calligra, Chrome and Dolphin because sometimes I sit further away from the monitor, but all of those native apps have no issue returning to normal zoom, and I never changed system fonts. I have mscorefonts installed through yast (fetchmsttfonts) and they appear in Calligra.
Please help, anyone.

After hours of torment, the solution was simple... I updated wine to the latest development release (1.5.14 currently) and the problem is gone. So this is clearly a bug with wine 1.5.6. Unfortunately that is the version in official openSuse 12.2 repos.
