Instead of building a whole new package you can just change the dpi

Thank you maro.

Found what was wrong with .Xdefaults: it was to have a line modified, not a new line added.

That would probably save a lot of effort. What is the command to change the dpi permanently?

Hi maro
Based on both your initial reply, and your many other helpful posts, I don't think your motives
were ever in question.

I think these misunderstandings come up easily when taking notable action like the closing of a thread, feelings of aversion can be amplified.

Just found a system-wide setting for the dpi: in .Xdefaults you can type this:

Xft.dpi: 120

But only seen it working in firefox, it does not affect flwm, neither terminals, nor TCB default apps.

That's only for scalable fonts. The X server decides the system DPI, how to override it depends on the server.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

You should be able to use the -dpi switch
Code: [Select]
Xvesa -dpi 75 -br -screen 1024x768x24 -nolisten tcp or set it in xorg.conf for Xorg

Is the following what you mean by overriding the X server's DPI?

You should be able to use the -dpi switch
Code: [Select]
Xvesa -dpi 75 -br -screen 1024x768x24 -nolisten tcp or set it in xorg.conf for Xorg
