Fedora 8 nVidia Livna drivers changing font size

When I installed the nVidia drivers from livna via YUM, the drivers change my font size, but the font size number stays the same.

I have a nVidia GeForce 6800, on Fedora 8 x86_64.

I added the image to the attachment for better viewing. Also saved it as jpg to reduce the size.

I had the same problem. I changed the DPI setting (click on Details in the Font tab to see this setting) to 96 to get the right font size.

Oh, I'm sorry, I'll remember to do that next time.

Hm, I like the 81 one that comes with the driver.

Haven't tried that option earlier. Thanks for the information.
