RH6.1 - Default system font


Hey Guys,

I recently upgraded one of our servers from RH5.5 to RH6.1. one of the many problems that accord was the default system font - it is just unreadable under RH6.1.

How can I compare both fonts? Where can I find these settings?
I still have the old server running...

The older server(RH5.5) is using KDE3 while the new server(RH6.1) is using KDE4.


Thanks in advanced.


Nir.

Look in System Settings => Application Appearance => Fonts.
