Fonts are too big with nvidia driver
I have a problem after installing the nvidia driver.

It works just fine. Hardware acceleration is OK too. However, fonts are too big with the nvidia driver. They weren't so big with the XFree nv driver.

I remember that when I had mandrake 9.2 installed, there was an option I used in the XF86Config-4 file that got the fonts "back on track"... however, that was months ago.. and I can't remember what It was. Anybody has any idea?

Re: Fonts are too big with nvidia driver
I think you can change this a couple of ways, though I've only tried the former. Good luck!

a) add -dpi 100 option to /etc/X11/xdm/Xserver, so you have a line something like this:

:0 local /usr/X11R6/bin/X -dpi 100


b) use the DisplaySize parameter in the "Monitor" section

This optional entry gives the width and height in mm of your monitor, and it is used to calculate the DPI

Add the entry:
DisplaySize XX YY

Re: Fonts are too big with nvidia driver
Man, you are such a deity! :D

Thanks. I tried your first solution. This is what was writen on line 0:
:0 local /usr/X11R6/bin/X -deferglyphs 16

I commented it and wrote the line you told me. It all got back to normal.

Can you tell me what this file is for?
