Font issue.

When ever I open up my konsole, the defualt font is way too small. I can barely read it. I seem to have the same problem with Gaim. The font is waaaaaaaaaaaaay too small. I've gone into the Controll Center > Apperance & Themes > Fonts. But adjusting those doesent seem to apply to the konsole or Gaim. Is there a system file somewhere I can edit to fix these fonts?

I don't know about gaim, but for Konsole, go to "Settings > Font > Custom..." and change the font size there. Then choose "Settings > Save as Default" so you don't have to change the size every time.

It seems to me that you are running KDE.

Since GAIM is not a KDE app, but a GNOME app, the KDE settings doesn't affect GAIM.

Why not use Kopete?

If you use the gtk-qt-theme engine, you can configure your gtk apps and fonts to mimic those from KDE.
