[mythtv-users] fvwm2 as a Window Manager

Yes, I have this issue, too.  I had to go into the setup to jack up all 
the font sizes, edit theme.xml file to increase the font size of 
buttons, and re-compile mythweather with hacked larger fonts.   Quite 

But when I start up myth using KDE, the fonts are fine.  With FVWM2, 
they're about half-size.
