Problem with fonts in KDE

By twest ·
I have recently downloaded and installed Linux Mandrake 7.2, and configured it to use the default GUI, which is KDE. However, on two occasions, now, I have launched an application to find the that fonts on the menu bar have become huge. The fonts are so large, that the system is basically unusable, since 1/3 of the screen is actually being taken up by the menu bar. The fonts become about 1/2 inch tall and the letters look like they are made up of dotted lines. This has happened twice before, and both times, I have done a complete re-install, because I cannot figure out how to get the system fonts back to normal. I am working with a Dell Optiplex GX110 with a Pentium III 866MHz processor, and 128MB RAM. I believe the video card is an Intel 8MB video card that comes with the system. Can someone please help me with this?

you could try to fix the problem using kde control center ->look and feel -> fonts, then choosing smaller font size.

another case could be if you are using wrong cpi fonts.
