Question Debian Sarge + KDE verry small fonts (on xmms, nerolinux, etc)


I'm coming over from fedora core 4 to debian..

now i am running on kde...
but the fonts on XMMS, or NeroLinux, and even when you open a file in Kwrite
are verry small i can not read them... so i tried to adjust them in Gnome Control panel -> Fonts well it didn't work... all fonts on those programs are still verry small.. to small to read..

the weird thing is.. exept for those few programs all others run just fine..(the fonts)

can anyone help me adjust these fonts?
because it's a hell when you can't read it..

It may be better to just adjust these individual programs as otherwise other apps may have too large fonts eg: xmms, click on menu on top left side, options,double size. Or menu, options, preferences, font.
