I have an issue regarding default font sizes in Fedora 6, both in KDE and GNOME. The default font size is 12 in FC6, which is rather small on my screen (SXGA+ on the IBM Thinkpad T43, ATI M22). To get readable (and smooth) text I have to set the font size to 14, step which needs to be done for almost every application, not to mention that there's nothing that can be done for menu fonts (for example for Mozilla, probably one needs to recompile it or something).
The problems stems from the fact that apparently both KDE and GNOME see for some reason an XGA screen size, eventhough everyhing seems to be set properly in Xorg.conf . Setting screen resolution by one of the config programs that deal with display settings under KDE/GNOME is of no help. Useless to say that according to those programs screen resulution is set to SXGA, with no apparent effect.
One thing that I've noticed is when I tried Ubuntu 6.06. There's no issue there under GNOME, everyhing seems to be properly recognized and set. I have tried starting X under FC6 with the xorg.cong from Ubuntu but that was of no help, there was no change. It seems that the issue has to do with some particularities of GNOME/KDE in FC6, maybe I need to change something by hand in some configuration file.
I would appreciate any suggestions on how to fix this issue.
