QT Apps with Small Fonts
« on: August 30, 2016, 04:25:50 pm »
I think the last issue re: the XFCE interface is the smallish fonts on QT apps.  No clue how to proceed but I have a feeling this is an easy fix.

Thanks in advance.

Can you give us a qt app (preferably without too many dependencies) that you know  incorrectly .. so we can test ?



My guess is this will be the

font="Ubuntu,24,-1,5,63,1,0,0,0,0"

line in one of these files

~/.config/Trolltech.conf
/etc/xdg/Trolltech.conf
/usr/share/mime/text/vnd.trolltech.linguist.xml
/usr/share/peppermint/qt/Trolltech-qt-session.conf
/usr/share/peppermint/qt/Trolltech.conf

Sorry for the delay, it has been a busy week.  Three apps for some reason with small fonts are Kwrite, Kate and Qbittorrent.  There is a plugin to normalize the issue, I just can't remember what it is.

Thanks.

Well, I finally found the time to read the entire thread and the font you refer to does not exist in any of the files referenced.  Further, I was surprised to see kde 4 QT in a few of them.

Sorry for the long delay, but it has been a hectic month.

~/.config/Trolltech.conf
/etc/xdg/Trolltech.conf
/usr/share/mime/text/vnd.trolltech.linguist.xml
/usr/share/peppermint/qt/Trolltech-qt-session.conf
/usr/share/peppermint/qt/Trolltech.conf

Sorry for the long delay, it has been a hectic month.  I do no see or have that line or even the files you reference.  Not sure what to do next.

Edit:  This issue also exists with VLC.
