Sounds like you may be experiencing a DPI consistency problem.
1-What does 'xdpyinfo | grep resolution' report?
2-What does 'xrdb -query | grep dpi' report?
3-What if any DPI is set in gnome-control-center?
4-What is your screen resolution?
5-What is your display size?
6-What if any DPI is set in KDE Control Center?
