I am facing an unusual issue with fonts on my desktop. That is whenever I try to install microsoft font arial, the system font display gets impacted i.e. becomes smaller and difficult to read in few places. I tried installing this font from Yast->software Manager->FetchMSTTFonts, Configure Desktop->Font Management and finally copying the font to folder /usr/share/fonts using sudo. All three ways gave me the same result. i found no other font from the fetchmsttfonts package causing this issue.
Further I tried increasing the DPI at Configure Desktop->Application Appearance->Fonts->Force fonts DPI to a higher range. This improved the situation slightly, but the font display does not look neat.
Is anyone else facing this issue? Any pointers to fix this?
I use OpenSuSE 13.1 AMD64 KDE desktop. Have a NVidia card GeForce 7100 / nForce 630i and 4 GB DDR2 RAM.
