Hi all,

after trying to tackle down several problems related to font rendering, dpi and "establishing a unique look across applications like firefox, konqueror, etc" I have one issue left*:

Akregator (I'm working with it within kdepim/kontact) renders the web pages far to big. If I open the same web pages in konqueror I get no problems, as konqueror seems to respect my konqueror-settings:
Code:

AutomaticDetectionLanguage=0
DefaultEncoding=
Fonts=DejaVu Sans,DejaVu Sans Mono,DejaVu Serif,DejaVu Sans,DejaVu Sans,DejaVu Sans,0
MediumFontSize=9
MinimumFontSize=7



Compared to the settings of akregator
Code:

Fonts=DejaVu Sans,DejaVu Sans Mono,DejaVu Sans,DejaVu Serif,DejaVu Sans,DejaVu Sans,0
MediumFontSize=9
MinimumFontSize=7

there seem to be no differences between each another.

:?: Any other hidden setting? What am I doing wrong?

For your convenience here's a screenshot . In the top part you can see konqueror, in the bottom part you see the same web page in akregator.

--------------------------
* don't believe, I really managed to solve all these problems :? I'd volunteer in helping writing a real gentoo guide (not that hacking like in the outdated howto "http://gentoo-wiki.com/HOWTO_Xorg_and_Fonts") to achieve consistent font appearance across all apps without using overlays, etc.

I now noticed, that if I run akregator standalone (without kontact/kdepim) I get no problems with webpages rendering to big.

I still hope, somebody gives me a hint for the right solution.

I suppose, that an
Code:

emerge -av konqueror-akregator
emerge -av kde-base/nsplugins media-video/kmplayer kde-base/konq-plugins
emerge -av x11-themes/nuvox

solved the problem. I suppose, the konqueror-akregator helped, but I am not really sure. I'm going to mark this thread as solved.

I've got to correct myself again. The solution above didn't solve the problem. Going to change title of thread to unsolved again. :cry:
