ok… this is interesting… i installed Suse 11.2 on my computer… i have 42" screen threw my HDMI output at 1360x768. now… when i booted it up the first time… .the text on everything was so small i could hardly read it… so i went and adjusted it threw my System settings by clicking on “Configure Desktop” changed everything to “Sans Serif 15”… BUT… everything in YAST all the text is NOT readable… ANY ONE KNOW how to fix that…

everything BUT yast is just fine…

Yast is run as root. The font settings are stored in the root account. To set this in Gnome, run

gnomesu gnome-appearance-properties

For KDE, use qtconfig,

kdesu qtconfig

I used qtconfig to change font Family, Style, Point Size.

But I have one strangeness. The title text appears to be a different (and strange) font.

For a specific example where I am seeing this, open: Yast -> System Service (Runlevel). The text at the top of the window is, “System Services (Runlevel): Services”. That text is a different font. Do you know how to make that the same as the rest of the window, or at least change it to something that doesn’t look strange.

Thank you.

Do ‘kdesu systemsettings’ in a terminal window. Enter rootpassword when prompted for. You now run systemsettings for the root user and can set the theme variables to those you have as a user, or give it a different colorscheme to make you aware of rootpermissions.
