I do indeed have a specially configured Inspiron with 1440x900
resolution screen. What I am trying to do is make the font size
smaller. For example the font size in fluxbox menu is still pretty
large and I would like to fit more information on the screen. Another
example is the font size in Xchat startup menu. You know what, let me
grab some screenshots .
Okay, here we go:
So, really my question should have been, can I make my fonts sizes
smaller than they are, or can I fit more information on the screen?
