Editing

/home/root/Settings/locale.conf

and changing the

[Language]
Language = ja

to

[Language]
Language = en

causes some text to significantly increase in size on the QT desktop.

(ref to http://www.oesf.org/forums/inde...?showtopic=7715 )

I have been searching but have found no leads to how &/or where QT gets the input on what fonts and sizes to use for these desktop items.

Can anyone enlighten me as to what is controlling the changes in QT fonts when locale.conf is modified?

THANKS!

In Sharp Qtopia the fonts selected are more or less hard coded. It basically looks through the fonts in /home/QtPalmtop/lib/fonts and picks one based on a few preferences (i.e. In English it prefers Helvetica to the other fonts).

This can be overriden with the use of zStyle, which may or may not work with the C860.

Thanks, tumnus.

Any documentation sources for the criteria on font selection?

Is there a way to find out which fonts are used at which point (other than trial & error file substitution)?

Is there a viewer to look at the entire contents of a font file?

The ability to increase the size of some QT "system" fonts while retaining the Japanese char set would be wonderful for old eyeballs like mine!!

I seem to recall having so trouble with zStyle on the C860 but maybe will give it another look see.

THANKS for the help!!
