View Full Version : [SOLVED] Editing font size with qtconfig

September 16th, 2012, 08:51 PM

I have a Acer Revo 3620 running Lubuntu 11.10 & qbittorrent v3.0.2 hooked up to my 40" Sont TV via HDMI.
I couldnt get the DPI to adjust properly to make the text readable so have adjusted the text size in Customize look and feel so I can actually read it now. The only text I cant seem to make bigger is the text on the taskbar and the text within qbittorrent.

I have been told that "qBittorent on Linux should use the qtconfig settings. Have you tried adjusting your fonts there?"
I have googled it and seen something about installing some qt3 or qt4 packages and then I got lost.

But I do not know how to do that as I am a complete noob to linux so any help is appreciated.

Ive managed to change the icon size but the text stayed tiny. I'm not that bothered about that anyway, it is the text in qbittorrrent that is most important

I figured it out myself

sudo apt-get install qt4-qtconfig

Then system preferences -> qt4 config
select Font tab and increase size, simples

It didnt affect text on taskbar but Im not bothered about that
