1 Hi all,
3 I use e17 as my window manager as well as various KDE and Gnome apps. I find
4 that fonts used in these apps are much bigger in e17 than in their native
5 environments - GTK apps being especially bad and Firefox being the worst.
7 By reading the 'startkde' script I found that running kcminit from my .xinitrc
8 makes a huge difference to KDE apps (they are now almost perfect). But kcminit
9 has something to do with control modules, so I think this is more a happy
10 side-effect that the RightThingToDo(tm). And I can't find the magic Gnome
11 thingy that has the same effect.
13 Anyone know the correct commands that KDE and Gnome run during startup to set
14 their environment correctly? I don't want to fiddle with themes and font
15 sizes, I do use the other desktops occasionally and when I do things must
16 still be readable.
