Fedora 8/KDE Font Bug for Gnome Applications

Fonts

If you are using Fedora 8 with KDE you may have noticed an interesting bug. Once you open some Gnome apps(for example, Exile, all the fonts in the KDE applications becomes one size smaller.

If this happens, the only way to fix it is to restart the X server – or so I thought. At first, I thought it was the issue of just one application – namely RhythmBox.

But I just found that there is a simple fix for this problem…

  • Run the command ‘gnome-appearance-properties’
  • Go to the ‘Fonts’ Tab
  • Click on the ‘Details’ Button at the bottom
  • Change the Resolution to 96 Dots per Inch(DPI)

Changing the DPI

That should solve your problem.

This issue appears only if your screen resolution is bigger than normal – mine is 1440×900.
