Comment 76 for bug 271283

I just tried to reproduce the problem on my machine under KDE3. It seems that without dpi set in Xresources LibreOffice uses a font larger than that used systemwide for the interface. I have KDE3, KDE4, Qt4, GTK2 applications all using the same font size and only LibreOffice using a font slightly larger.

This can be mitigated only by setting the DPI in Xresources.

As to subpixel hinting I have set it up in /etc/fonts/local.conf
