small font in gtk1.2

When I'm opening a file with gtk1.2 window (ex. in xmms, mplayer) filenames are unreadable because of terrible small font. I tried just to change a theme and font with gtk-theme-switch, but there's no difference in font size. Anyone know what to do?

Edit a corresponding file from the theme (themes contains several files).
I did it last time cuz of too big fonts
I cannot tell you which file it is exactly. But it isn't very hard to find. Try "find file" in mc and search for "font". Then use xfontsel to chose your font and paste it to the correct file.
