Icons and fonts to small for a 24" monitor

I just upgraded a user's workstation Ultra 10 to Solaris 2.8 from 2.6.  When I hooked up the monitor back up the size of the icons and fonts we're to small for the 24 inch monitor.  Is there a command I can use to change to increase the size of the icons and fonts to match the size of the monitor?

Thanks,

Brian

i think that would have to depend on your window manager...  in gnome, you would applications->desktop preferences->font

in cde, you would go to Desktop Controls, that's the icon on the bar that's between the printers and the load meter...

THanks for the suggestion, that only increase the font sizes.  I'm trying to find a way to have the icon's size be proportional to the size of the screen.  When the user opens an icon, the appilcation looks like it belongs on a 17-19" monitor.  It's way to small to read.

Thanks

What window manager are you using and what is your graphics adapter (video card) model?

I was able to figure out what I needed to do.

Ran fbconfig -dev /dev/fb -res 1280x800x76
