KDE 3.3 Changed my Font ...Please help


Hi all... I updated KDE to 3.3 and now my whole desktop has changed to a horrible font. In fact, it is hurting my eyes. I can't find where to change my setting to a decent font. Could someone point my in the right direction so that I can fix this?

Thanks for your help

Sorry guys, let me clarify... The font that is bad, on the All applications menu. And also on the icons on my desktop.

My browser fonts are great.

Thanks Again

Run Kde Control Center from menu or) in a terminal #kcontrol

Kcontrol [Kde Control Center] -->appearance and Themes -->fonts

make sure you check the antialiasing fonts

Kcontrol [Kde Control Center] -->System Adminstration -->Font Manager [to add new fonts].

You can also add windows true type fonts (.ttf) files from your mounted windows partition if you have one.

Thanks for replying .... I have messed with the control center and can change all the fonts to what I want, except the All Applications and the Title bar of the browser. Everything else is fine. Is that font setting located somewhere else?

Thanks

What browser are you using, Firefox ??

When you said application's did you mean Qt based [KDE] application's or Gtk based [GNOME] applications.

Try and restart your Xserver / computer and see if the fonts change.

Did you make sure to delete the .kde folder when you upgraded it?
