I did a minimal install from a BKO ISO last night, as something i want to test needs a newer glibc than CentOS 6.4 provides. i havent used Fedora since maybe 8.
Anyways im trying to create a really lightweight install of Fedora, ie, no Gnome/KDE bloat.
I have had problems getting SLiM to work (and have abandoned that after making it impossible to boot into Fedora), im currently running fluxbox directly from runlevel 3 via startx (i will work out how to make lxdm or lightdm work when i calm down a bit).
So to my problem. I have a font problem. Basically, their is a weird font being used in firefox for the menus, not in the actual browser window. This makes me think its a system font config problem. I have tried installing TTF fonts, tried font-tweak-tool, tried tweaking /etc/fonts/local.conf, installed the x11 100dpi and 75dpi font rpms, and all to no avail. I dont think the problem is gnome related since it isnt installed.
Here are a couple of screenshots, to illustrate things.
Also at the same time is their a way to make these fonts a bit bigger, like force them to use liberation-sans-12.
Im hoping someone has an idea as after reading about 20 or so pages on google, im still hitting a wall. It wasnt even this hard in Arch.
So thanks for any help.

For the Icecat/Firefox/Thunderbird ive discovered a dirty little hack. Its possible to force fonts and styles by creating/editing userChrome.css inside the chrome/ directory.
Its obviously a way of forcing overrides, but the original problem still exists, but for now this makes using Icecat, tolerable.
