Description Gene Czarcinski 2001-08-05 16:03:09 EDT
Description of Problem:
When a kde sesion initializes for a new user, the default fonts and sizes
are more than a bit small.  However, if you bring up the kde control center
and select LookNFeel->fonts and then chose one of the fonts but DON'T cnage
anything and say OK, and apply the fonts sizes change ... much bigger, in
fact a bit too big.

The two sets of sizes should be the same

How Reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. see above

Actual Results:
font sizes (and perhaps fonts) change

Expected Results:
no change

This defect is considered SHOULD-FIX for Fairfax.
Comment 2 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-08-07 10:13:14 EDT
Can't reproduce any of this. Please be more specific. Also include which X 
server and graphics hardware you're using.
Comment 3 Gene Czarcinski 2001-08-07 17:28:15 EDT
I did not really changed the size of fonts but they got "bigger".

The server is 4.1.0 and the video adapter is an ATI Rage 128 RF.  I am attaching
lspci -v and lspci -vn.

This does not seem to reproduce on a different system with an ATI Rage XL AGP
(rev 27).

Comment 6 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-08-08 05:43:52 EDT
By any chance, did you enable anti-aliasing?
Comment 7 Gene Czarcinski 2001-08-08 16:22:10 EDT
Anti-aliasing enabled on both system -- the Rage 128 Rf and the ATI Rage XL AGP.
Comment 8 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-08-09 04:22:05 EDT
The problem is that most fonts are not suitable for antialiasing, so you get 
pretty much random fonts.
I've added a quick and dirty hack to get fonts that at least look sane to qt
