View Full Version : [SOLVED] X11 Forwarding small menus fonts

October 2nd, 2009, 05:34 AM

When I start an X application in Gnome (My chosen XDM), the menus are just fine in relation to their font size. When I start those same applications later, on my Windows machine using SSH + X11 Forwarding, the menus fonts are very tiny and I can barely make the words for them... I was hoping maybe there is a way to change that?

Thanks in advance,


If you don't have ~/.gtkrc-2.0, create it, containing the single line

gtk-font-name = "geneva 12"Of course, you can choose different font names and sizes, but this is a good starting value.
