Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 509579
No way to change font size or DPI
Last modified: 2015-01-14 18:23:17 EST
Description of problem:
GDM has no way to change the font sizes or the DPI but always uses the sizes defined by the GTK theme and the DPI value autodetected from X. The display of the XO for example uses 200 DPI by default, so fonts are way to huge.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot Fedora LiveCD from USB on the XO
The fonts are to huge and the drop downs overlap as described already half a year ago in bug 473453.
GDM should honor /etc/X11/Xresources or have a way to set Fonts and DPI values.
Changing version to rawhide to avoid that bug gets closed by the bugzappers.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 12 development cycle.
Changing version to '12'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
I can duplicate this in Fedora 11, will try F-12.

Stupid bug zappers...
Hi, if you start up gconf-editor and go to /desktop/gnome/font_rendering/dpi change the value, then right click on it and choose "Set as Default" and then enter your root password, it should fix your issue.
Thanks, but is there a way to do such a thing in kickstart, so we can actually do it in a spin?
For the record: Add something like this to %post:
gconftool-2 --direct --config-source=xml:readwrite:/etc/gconf/gconf.xml.defaults -s -t string /desktop/gnome/font_rendering/dpi 200 >/dev/null
I am now closing this bug.
