In Ubuntu I have installed the KDE app Konsole.
I want to change the default font size of the KDE menus and dialogs, etc... to be larger.
(I don't mean the font in the Konsole's terminal window.)

How can I do this?

I found the answer (It works!)...
It is done via a KDE package called: systemsettings ...(Synaptic)

From Wikipedia:

System Settings is a program where you can configure many parts of your desktop.
Color, style, shortcuts and many other things. It takes the place of KDE 3's KControl.
