Thanks for your reply.
I'm running xfstt and the xserver is started from kdm (KDE). I should
have mentioned this in the first place.
I'm still trying to figure out how to adjust what you are mentioning.
I tried to start "xfstt --res 100" with no effect but am not sure yet
if I did it correctly.
According to the Xfree86 HOWTO the order of paths in X86config should
not matter when xfstt is used :-/ but I changed it anyway to no avail.
I adapted kdmrc also for "Failfont=helvetica,14,5,0,100,0" and
but to no avail.
I'm on a loose here. Can you or somebody else please elaborate. Seems
to me that I'm a X11 Luser ;-)
