Hi

I have installed Opensuse 12.2 (32 bit) with KDE 4.9.2 "release 511" as my desktop. I am unable to change my kdm fonts no matter what I try. I went through different threads and tried the following:

1) In personal settings, have anti-aliasing enabled and force fonts DPI to 96.
2) Changed font size in Personal settings>Login Screen.
3) Added "ServerArgsLocal=-nolisten tcp -dpi 96" in kdmrc under [X-*-Core] section.
4) Added "-dpi 96 “ under DISPLAYMANAGER_KDM_LOCALARGS in /etc/sysconfig.
5) Added "kdm4" under DISPLAYMANAGER in /etc/sysconfig.
6) Included
Option "UseEdidDpi" "FALSE"
Option "DPI" "96 x 96"
in 50-device.conf file.

Nothing, I mean nothing has changed in the login screen. I have NVIDIA 304.43 driver installed and Kernel is 3.4.6-2.10-desktop i686. In previous versions of Opensuse, one of the 6 mentioned possible changes would solved the problem. Where am I going wrong this time ???? Please help, I am completely lost after trying for 2 days !!!!

I believe it has to do with your KDM theme. For example, I've personally edited /usr/share/apps/kdm/themes/ariya/ariya.xml, line 5:
Code: Select all
   <style font="Sans 12" window-text-color="#bfd9ff"

to
Code: Select all
   <style font="Sans 8" window-text-color="#bfd9ff"


This usually requires root permission and will probably be overwritten when you update. Another option could be to copy a KDM theme, edit it, and install it as a new theme.
