Re: [Evolution] Huge Fonts under SuSE 9.3/KDE

I just upgraded from Evolution 1.<something> to 2.2.1 while upgrading
from SuSE 9.1 to 9.3.  Evolution now has huge fonts in the folder view
and in the subject view.

I'm not sure which "views" you are referring to exactly -- the folder
tree left hand and the mail pane at the top containing all mails in the
current folder?

gnome-font-properties has no effect.

It should. Actually "Application font" in 'gnome-font-properties' is the
setting responsible for both mentioned above.

Changing fonts in KDE Control Center has no effect.

Sure it doesn't. Evolution as GNOME app doesn't even know about KDE

I've ensured that X11 knows the dimensions of my monitors.

As you are using KDE as desktop, you should make sure both GNOME and KDE
are using the same DPI values. Otherwise fonts will look different when
using the same font size.

Please see the Resolution value in 'gnome-font-properties' / "Details"
button and adjust to the value used by KDE if necessary.

How can I tell Evolution what font to use?

A common reason for issues like this is the gnome-settings-daemon not
running. Without this daemon, adjusting Gnome settings won't have any
effect, IIRC.

Try adding gnome-settings-daemon to your KDE Session.

This has been the solution for most issues with GNOME apps on a KDE
desktop not behaving nicely -- I'm not a KDE user, though... ;)
