As some of you know, I've been having cataract surgery this summer, and I 
have a hopefully temporaty problem with the screen font size in Ubuntu 
(Gnome desktop)

I don't want to change the screen size from 1024 x 768, because it really 
has a lot of advantages when I'm using Gimp. I could change to 800 x 600 but 
that just makes the screen window smaller and type is not larger, andI can 
barely read the screen at times now. In windoze there's an "accessability" 
function that lets a user enlarge the type or make a virtual magnifying 
glass. There's something similar in KDE and i've used it. But I can't find 
anything like this in Ubuntu, even though I've been searching the web for a 

Does anyone else have this problem? Does anyone have a solution? Can anyone 
help out with a copy of a Kubuntu CD?
