Fwd: (solved) KDE root programs' fonts very small

Valorie Zimmerman
Can we set this environmental variable for the next release so our users don't have to do it individually?

Hi!

I've had the problem, that graphical programs (or program parts), which run as root, had a very small font size - such as systemsettings5 or muon's settings->configure software sources window.

I've investigated it, and I found that the following has to be added to /etc/environment:

XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP=KDE

That is, the XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP environment variable needs to be set to "KDE". But this doesn't work when set in ~/.bashrc, ~/.proile or /etc/profile. Looks like these scripts aren't called by kdesudo. Instead, it works when the mentionend line is included in /etc/environment (not a script).

Bye
Volker
