fonts & xwin mgrs

Installed Slackwar 12. All well but!, any window manager kde, xfce, etc. create small unreadable font. xorg.conf is correct. KDE has largest print but is unsatisfactory. Found a couple of scripts in /etc/X11/apps-default which are possibly related to this but my Xwin talents are not recent enough to begin thrashing about. Need some help.

The solution requires modification to xorg.conf, establishing ~/.gtkrc-2.0 with a font size (and type), and modifications to Desktop, Panel Manager, User Interface, and Window Manager preferences under Settings.
