More font problems


since ive installed kdevelop ive had really fuzzy looking fonts - for the most part (widgets, title bars, console, and start menu) - ive set the font as 'clean' (which is a font type) which makes these areas look fine. - however, there are areas i cannot seem to set eg the file browser part in konquerer (where the filenames are) ... the writing is almost inelegible ... - im a completely new to linux, so would anyone mind explaining (either step by step) or referring me to a page that will be able to sort this problem. Ive searched through google groups and on this forum among others, and i keep hitting dead ends, or things i dont understand.

thanks

Andrew

hi there

get some ttf fonts of ur choice or freetype fonts package

open up your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file
there u can see what is the path for ttf fonts
pout those fonts there
next time start the kde control center ,go to he fonts section and change them
if u want the original fonts then there is an option of default settings also
also u can compile and use the freetype fonts package also

regards
