You need to set that for qt4. I'd use qtconfig-qt4 to do that, but I 
don't know if it's available on your machine.


FYI, I've got all our EeePCs---two 901s and a 1000---all running Fedora 
10, which works very well with one of the lighter desktops, like XFCE or 
LXDE. And then you can do as you please.

I added the following to ~/.config/Trolltech.conf
It worked but it was a bit harsh that I had to use a font size of 5. I
don't suppose anyone knows of a way to scale down the space *between*
items on the dialog? (which is where much of the space  goes).

[Qt]
font=Sans Serif,5,-1,5,50,0,0,0,0,0

I think the 900+ EeePCs have a resolution of 1024x600, which really helps.
