Huge fonts on KDE

Hi all,

I am currently using KDE on my EEE-PC netbook.

All is well. However, the fonts are huge. I have tried setting the font size lower. This works, but only to an extent. The KDE menus and such look great, but for applications like Wireshark, the fonts are huge. No matter what I do I cannot lower the font size for those apps. Tried forcing the DPI as well, but no luck.

Is there a way around this please?

Thanks in advance!

Know these?


Normally the compile step in the second link is not necessary. Just concentrate on the resolution of 96x96, that should do the trick.
