I'm using XFCE 4.8. I'd like to try Dolphin as my default file manger. The fonts are to small in the file list (detailed, icon, or compact) view, but not in the left navigation pane. How can I increase the font size? "Zooming in" only increases the size of the icon, not the file or directory name.

dolphin --version
Qt: 4.8.2
KDE Development Platform: 4.8.4 (4.8.4)
Dolphin: 2.0

Yes, from the "view modes" config tab; once I change the font from "system font" to "custom font," I can use the "choose" button, and select the font size. Thanks.

The View Modes configuration tab should have an option to change the font itself, but I don't think you can explicitly change the font size.
