Description Pawel Orzechowski 2003-09-14 08:06:50 EDT
Description of problem: 
After setting the option "DisplaySize 28 21" in /etc/X11/XF86Config file, 
fonts in konqueror and openoffice are of enormous size, and one can't change 
them. This causes this apps just unusable. In the meantime xlsfonts command 
does not display any font while there is about 100 installed. After removing 
this option from XF86config everything come back to normal. 
 
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 
XFree86 4.3.0-2 
 
How reproducible: 
Always 
 
Steps to Reproduce: 
Set DisplaySize parameter in /etc/X11/XF86config file to 28 21 (manually or 
using redhat-config-xfree86) and restart X server. Then run konqueror 
(3.1.3-0.9x.2 from RedHat) or openoffice. Additionally one can run xlsfonts. 
     
Actual results: 
DPI value causes malfunction in konqueror and openoffice due to problems with 
fonts (probably) 
 
Expected results: 
 
setting DPI should not have any inpact on application 
 
 
Additional info: 
I did not try setting other values of this parameter.
Comment 1 Mike A. Harris 2003-09-14 08:45:50 EDT
Sorry, but I find it hard to believe that you have a 28mm by 21mm screen.
If you're going to configure such settings, please read the documentation
(man XF86Config) and configure things correctly.

With your configuration, I would fully expect fonts to take up a large portion
of the screen.

Closing as NOTABUG (end user misconfiguration).
