Changing Menu & browser font size

Post by Pesia »

Is it possible to change font size in menu & browser?
I'm using gentoo linux with XnView 1.68 (from portage).
Fonts are too small I can be hardly red it :(.
Is there any config file to set it up?

You can change the XnView file from app-defaults

I increased by 2 all fontsizes in /etc/X11/app-defaults/XnView/XnView
but it has no effect :(. Does the program use this file by default or mayby I should set correct path (ex. in /etc/env.d/99XnView)???

Strange, XnView use this file. You don't have another XnView file?

No, I don't have another XnView file. It seems like XnView does not read this file at all (it does not react on any modifications). Removing this file also does not make any difference.

Wow! I solved it :D! I renamed folder:

Code: Select all

/etc/X11/app-defaults/XnView/
and then copied file XnView from renamed folder to

Code: Select all

/etc/X11/app-defaults/
Now XnView uses configuration file!
Thanks for tip about this file!
