font sizing

When using kde, you should be able to change the font size in
(Kde) System Settings -> Application Appearance -> Gtk+ Appearance
There is an option there to use a custom font (with size).

On Fedora 18 this doesn't work properly though due to a bug [1]. So to 
get this fixed, you need to do two things:
- Configure a font and size using the above setting panel
- Manually edit the generated config file ($HOME/.gtkrc-2.0-kde4):
   If you look into this file you will find (among others) two lines:
   font_name="<font name>"
   gtk-font-name="<font name> <font size>"
   You will have to add your chosen font size to the font_name line 
similar to how it was added to gtk-font-name

I'm not sure what linux flavour you are using, so perhaps you have more 
luck and don't need the second step.

Good luck.
