    Exclamation Help - Fresh Install *Urgent*



    this image has not been resized. I can't read anything. At all. Someone saying "Open a terminal and tell me what it says" is not going to help because I cant read the terminal, and I cant read the configuration to change the terminal font size.

    Video card is Nvidia 260 if that even makes a difference, changing the "Appearance" font size settings Setting all to fontsize "22" dosent change my Taskbar I can't read anything.. this is a DEFAULT install.. everything was set to Automatic, everything is default - I'll be patiently stalking this thread untill I can read my task bar.. at least.

    P.S. Oh and the reason I can still read firefox is because I CTRL+Mousescrolled to Maxzoom.

    also a note, changing the font DPI makes little to no difference.

    Patience is a virtue.

    Did you try running qtconfig?

    I had that same problem when I tried to run KDE4 on my media center with 50 inch LCD TV at 1024x768. I could not find any way to adjust the font globally at time with KDE 4.1 so I ended up switching to GNOME. Does anyone know if there is a way to increase the font size globally across all KDE4 apps, popups, menu etc?

    I know you can use <crtl + shift> ++ to increase the font size in the terminal and some apps but I could never find an option to increase the font across KDE as a whole.

    thanks

    You can change the settings with configure-desktop (systemsettings) the spanner/hammer icon should see it in kicker
    There is a screen icon under computer admin

    Wow! Really small :-O

    I guess you are using "nv" driver as it is a default install...

    Have you tried to install the nvidia driver from opensuse repo and see if
    after that your fonts come back to life? :-)

    Unless your tty fonts are as smaller as the ones you get within a graphical
    session, you can switch to tty1 and work from there. openSUSE's yast in
    ncurses is really easy and intuitive.

    Greetings,
