F10: default fonts too big



Hello,


I've just installed Fedora 10 on a i383 system with WUXGA screen
running at 1920x1200. I notice that the default fonts in GNOME and
other X11/Qt apps are way too big. To get font size that fits my needs,
I have to set fonts height to 5-7, whereas usually I was more or less
at 8-10 on my previous Fedora 8 (same screen). I could live with this,
but there are apps that don't obey GNOME font settings, then I feel I'm
not doing it the right way.

I installed both 75dpi and 100dpi fonts, I feel it's related to the
DPI, but I'm not mastering all this very well (euphemism). What could I
do on a system-wide basis to get not-too-big fonts settings? I tried
setting the Xft.dpi to 75 and restarted Xorg, but apparently it stays
at 96 (see log excerpts below).

Help is welcome!
