I’ve a handicap with my eyes, so I like big fonts on my desktop, liberation / size 12.
When I start synaptic, I get little fonts, it is a pain for me to work with it. Synaptic uses default fonts setting. Under Debian without sudo mechanism not a problem, kdesu systemsettings > modifing fonts and the next start of synaptic shows this modified fonts.
But under netrunner16 it is a little bit tricky. kdesudo systemsettings let me configure fonts, but this refers to /home/my-user and not to /root. But synaptic still uses default settings.
The following helps:
- Switching with Strg+Alt+F1 to console
- login as first user
(starting kde as root)
6. systemsettings > fonts configuration
7. kde logout
init 5 && exit
Now I have a synaptic with customised fonts settings.
