I previously tried to use KDE with Awesome WM, and currently try just to use Awesome WM. I use a Vicious battery widget and
nm-applet for networking. It works pretty well.
However, all my fonts are way too big. I assume that the ThinkPad X220 screen sets a resolution around 120 DPI which then causes all fonts to become bigger:
With KDE, I had the font resolution forced to 96 DPI, which worked well. When I start the KDE
systemsettings and go into the fonts menu, change something and back again, some programs, like Dolphin and Firefox, will pick up the right font sizes. However, Konsole does not, and it does not make sense to me. See Konsole and Dolphin next to each other:
Another thing that changed, even when I log in with KDE+Awesome again, is that all fonts appear to be a little thinner. I guess that some anti-alias changed, but I have no idea what that was.
How can I get my fonts to behave normally?
