Skype fonts too big after KDE4 install?

On Ubuntu Gutsy, if you have installed KDE 4.0, as per this page on, you might notice that in Gnome , your Skype font is much too large.

The solution is to

sudo apt-get qt4-qtconfig

then, from the terminal , type


You will notice that the QT window has fonts about the same size as the big Skype ones. Change them using the QT Config interface, select File -> Save.

Your Skype fonts will then be back to something more normal in Gnome.
