Thank you for supplying the details. This helps already.

I'm still wandering around in the config files. XF86_SVGA -dpi 100 yes
that's what I'm trying (or X if this is the link to the Xserver.)
SuSE and KDE is really complicated with their config files.
I figured out about the runlevel scripts for a firewall before
and am now quite familiar with it, so I look forward to eventually
finding it for X as well. It just takes some time :-P

No, no TTF Helvetica, it is adobe-helvetica-xx
When the application wants TTF Arial wine gives it Adobe Helvetica.
