Trying to change fonts was a good idea. specially with searching docs for helvetica . in /etc/X11/XF86Config had to append to the fonts-pathes FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi" there was only FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi:unscaled" which blocks scaling. looks a bit ugly now, but proportions are right. also there is a "fetchmsttfonts" on suse, which fetches ttf-fonts from m$, but seems it misses helvetica.
