GTK apps will only (apparently) obey the DPI info they get
from gnome-settings-daemon. If you are running gnome, you
will have one of these already and you can go into the
gnome appearance dialog and into the advanced settings
in the fonts tab and tell it to use a specific DPI setting.
KDE apps will probably obey the Xft.dpi X resource, but only if they
actually see it, and with all the changes to X I have no idea
if it even pays attention to things like ~/.XDefaults any more.
You may need to use xrdb to load it.
Well, this really helped me. This is incredible how I could miss the
DPI setting in the GNOME font settings page. Turned it to 96 and voila.
I played w/ qtconfig-qt4 for the Qt4 apps. Will check if some other
apps are still big-font-ed.
Thanks a bunch, Tom.
