Here is some info I kept from Lonnie Borntreger, which deal with font
tweaking if you use KDE as your window manager:
I use KDE also. Here is some cutting and pasting from some of my
previous emails on the topic to others.
- make sure you have gnome control center installed
- install gconf-editor (kind of a "regedit" for gnome - allows you to
make changes without running gnome - since doing that may hijack your
desktop, screen saver, etc.)
- run gconf-editor and change the following
* desktop->gnome->background->draw_background (uncheck)
* apps->gnome_settings_daemon->start_screensaver (uncheck)
* apps->nautilus->preferences->show_desktop (uncheck)
* I also had to mess with some gnome settings like dots per
inch, mouse settings, keyboard repeat, etc. to prevent the gnome
daemon from changing my KDE settings.
- run gnome-font-properties to set your fonts (it will start the
Now the final step it to ensure that the gnome-settings-daemon starts up
automatically when you start up KDE (the KDE session manager will not do
this for you) - or the fonts will be incorrect anyway. Go to
~/.kde/Autostart and create a file called gsd.desktop and put the lines
between the ==== into that file.
NOTE: The Exec line is broken into two. The --oaf-activate option is a
continuation of the previous line. After the Exec=, it should look like:
This works for me. It is a bit of a pita to remember which tool to run
(gnome-font-properties) when I want to tweak the fonts and would _love_
if the KDE & Gnome folks would come up with a common standard for such
things so that the two desktops could share these types of settings.
