BongC36-

This is a great writeup and is worthy of a wiki entry IMHO. I will do it if you don't mind my name being in as the author of the page but it would be more fitting coming from you. I guess the question is: where in the wiki to put it?

Fred

Edit: P.S. I didn't use this trick because I wound up going to progressive lenses at about the same time I got the N900

Excellent! Thank you for this post. The font size in the address book is ridiculously small.



Thank you

Larry

Such great for everyone ...

I don't know about Linux but I just love N900.
I did flasher 3.5 two times with step by step and it's ok.

But to increase font size I'm 0.
I type: cd/usr/share/themes
it shows: /bin/sh: cd/usr/share/themes: not found

I type: ls *.css
it shows: MyDocs
/home/usere # cd marina/gtk-2.0
/bin/sh: cd: can't cd to marina/

I type: leafpad gtkrc
it shows: leafpad in gtkrc but an empty page only.
I don't what to do next.
I don't find "font definitions"
I don't find "new fonts fremantle"

Please help.

there is a space between cd and /


I type: ls *.css
it shows: MyDocs
/home/usere # cd marina/gtk-2.0
/bin/sh: cd: can't cd to marina/


there is a space between ls and *

in part 2
there is also a space between cd & / in step 11. Type "cd /usr/share/rtcom-messaging-ui/html"

step 13. type "leafpad MessagingWidgetsSMSConversations".

I typed : leafpad MessagingWidgetsSMSConversation.css

when you type ls *.css, you will see the 3 files, just type leafpad and the complete file name.

I type: leafpad gtkrc
it shows: leafpad in gtkrc but an empty page only.
I don't what to do next.
I don't find "font definitions"
I don't find "new fonts fremantle"

Please help.

Thank you,
I did part1 and it was OK.
Part2 I have tried a few steps but I couldn't understand easily I would take more time to slowly do step by step again pretty soon.

I am having trouble installing rootsh and leafpad. It stays on the 'preparing for installation, please wait' window and does not do anything.

Is there anything I need to change to be able to install things?

I only just got the phone for my dad yesterday and he said the font is too small and it needs to be change asap!

Thanks!
Priscilla

you don't have to do anything special. Just activate your wifi, go to app manager and download the software.

sometimes there is a delay before successfully installing.

I followed your procedure for part 2 but I get an error "cannot open file to write when I do a save. What's wrong with it?

was using the increased fonts without a problem on PR1.1.1.

somehow, i did the same editing after flashing to PR1.2, system fonts are larger, but the SMS/Messaging part doesn't work.

any help?
