Thread: Need to set minimum any font size = 8pt

    Default Need to set minimum any font size = 8pt

    Hi.

    I need to set minimum font size for any applications to 8 pt.
    So if application wants to use 7 or 6, I anyway have to see 8 pt.

    Thanks for suggestions.

    Hi.

    If I add to fonts.conf:

    <match target="font" >
    <test compare="less" name="size" >
    <double>8</double>
    </test>
    <edit mode="assign" name="size" >
    <double>8</double>
    </edit>
    </match>

    Will it help to change all fonts which smaller then 8 be 8 pt?


    Thanks.

    -welcome-

    you might consider telling us what operating system and desktop
    environment you are using--i'll guess openSUSE 11.1 with KDE4 and
    suggest you find in the main menu "Personal Settings Configure
    Desktop" and then go "Appearance & Themes" > "Fonts" and set your font
    needs there..

    if you are not using that combo (11.1/kde4) and/or want to edit a
    config i'd suggest you read at least this (and other info) inside
    /etc/fonts/fonts.conf

    DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE.
    IT WILL BE REPLACED WHEN FONTCONFIG IS UPDATED.
    LOCAL CHANGES BELONG IN 'local.conf'.
    then,

    - while waiting for other input (i'd not a real guru)

    - read more in the installed documentation, try:
    <file:///usr/share/doc/manual/opensuse-manual_en/manual/sec.x11.fontconfig.html>

    - backup

    - put your draft code (*maybe* revised after reading the doc) in
    /etc/fonts/local.conf

    - restart X

    - see what happens (i have NO idea what your code will do--there is a
    forum here named http://forums.opensuse.org/programming-scripting/ but
    i almost never go there as it causes only headaches...someone there
    can maybe give some programming hints, i do not know..)

    - come back and tell us what worked (for the next guy to find with google)

    Thanks for reply.

    Problem is that some **** **** set fonts how they like.

    So, I decide to go by different way:
    1. I've made font dpi = 96, system was 86, after that 7 pt became readable (without anti-aliasing because I like my eyes)
    2. Then from qtconfig I adjust font size and every thing is fine now.

    Thanks.
