Mandrake 9.2 fonts/display problem - Radeon 7000
I have just installed Mandrake 9.2 but seem to have a display problem. When logging in to KDE the fonts are so small they are unreadable. By changing the font sizes to 32 in the KDE Control Panel (both as root and as user), the general interface becomes usable, but some programs - notably Mandrake Control Centre - still seem to display with the miniscule fonts making any adjustments to the system setup nearly impossible. The window text in Konqueror etc. is also way too small (despite increaing it the application settings). In addition, with OpenOffice and KOffice (rich text) applications, the page is displayed several times wider than it is tall, with 3 or 4 cm between individual letters making effective use problematic. This is despite the fact that the page is setup to be A4 portrait. I'm guessing that both of the above are caused by my hardware not interacting well with the XFree86 driver and/or the X Font Server and would appreciate any advice as to how they can be resolved. I've searched the web for solutions but without success, and have tried the ati & vesa drivers - as well as changing the display depth and resolution - but the problems still remain. The font problem is unique to Mandrake 9.2 and KDE, but the OpenOffice/KOffice problem also existed in 9.1. Thank you.
