I don’t know anymore how I fixed it but after a HDD crash I lost my config and all. But even with no config (the standard ugly shit), when i start xterm (fontsize 10 in .Xdefaults) the fontsize is HUGE. if I adjust it to 8, it’s the same as in xfce4 and gnome2.
Same problem in bluefish editor, gvim and others: all fonts are too big! What the fuck? How can you solve that?
I already installed gtk2-theme-switch and used the font option and the looks & menu fonts are OK right now. But the general text stuff isn’t. I mean, even xterm has fucked up fonts? Help?
What order are your font lines listed in /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 (or xorg.conf, if you use that)? Also, what is the -dpi option that your Xserver is told to run with? I set my -dpi to 96, and list the *75dpi fonts in my XF86Config-4 file, before the *100pdi fonts.
