Also, make sure your monitor's dimensions are set correctly in your X settings
(sax2). X uses those to calculate what DPI your display has, and if it
guesses too low, your fonts will appear too small.

In 10.2 we've added a feature to the KControl->Appearance->Fonts config to
allow you to hardwire a DPI, for people where SaX/xorg.conf is outside their
control, or just too scary, so you could experiment with that too.
