           Summary: gtk 2 default fonts too small when switching from ubuntu
                    to kubuntu
           Product: Ubuntu
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: kubuntu-desktop
        AssignedTo: debzilla at ubuntu.com
        ReportedBy: threadsafe at retrogui.com
         QAContact: kubuntu-bugs at lists.ubuntu.com

I switched from ubuntu to kubuntu by installing the kubuntu-desktop package.  I
run my display at higher resolutions 1280 (or higher) and gtk based applications
such as Firefox and most Gnome applications displayed with a very tiny default
font. Perhaps a default ~/.gtkrc-2.0 default configuration file could be
included with the kubuntu-desktop and installed in all user home directories. 
My ~/.gtkrc-2.0 file contains 

gtk-font-name="BitStreamVeraSans 14"

A 12 point default font size may be better for most people.
