Titel: Fonts growing strange issue
I have seen this on two installs one on a laptop with an ATI card the other in a VMware install on my work PC. After install the fonts in some applications, menus start to get larger and each time you open a new menu or app they get bigger. The fix is easy log out hit control alt backspace to restart the xserver and everything seems OK after that. I have as of right now only seen it once on each install although I have not been running Kanotix for more than a couple of days at this point and only part time right now. I have not seen this issue on any other ditros including Lenny which Kanotix is based so it seems to be Kanotix specific I also have no idea how to replicate it or if it will come back. I am posting here to see if anyone else has seen this as well. I wish I tought to get screenshots if it happens again I will grab them then.
I really like the new Kanotix KDE 3.5 version thanks to everyone that worked on it.

Maybe you used iceweasel and hold the ctrl key + mouse wheel?

This was in the menus in different apps like kword as well as the kmenu. Like I said I wish I had thought to take a picture of it. If it happens again I will get a screenshot.

Here I finally got some pictures it happened again on another box and again a restart fixed it. You will see some fonts are big and some are regular. This has only ever happened under Kanotix not sure what the difference is.

Hi jpisini,

thanks for your feedback and your screenshots. I can remember a similar problem with big fonts on my test-laptop. I could easy fix that with one of Kanos nice scripts. Maybe you try as root
fix-dpi-kdm 75
(of course you can use other dpi values)

Regards TheOne

If I see it again i will definitely try that out thanks. A reboot always fixes it and it hasn't reoccurred on any of those machines again.
