How do I keep my res at 1024x768, but increase font size?

If you're using KDE, click the "K" in the bottom left corner and choose Preferences -> Look & Feel -> Fonts from the menus.

modify /usr/X11R6/bin/startx to add a server argument "-dpi 96"

Any editor should do. I had this line:
Code:
serverargs=""

I changed it to:
Code:
serverargs="-dpi 96"

Didn't notice any differences (Gnome panel icons may have gotten smaller).

It should definitely make a difference. BTW, there are no fixed values for DPI, you can pick whatever you like ... try 120 for example. You can easily test it before changing config files:

Code:
startx -- -dpi 120


It's true that panel fonts might not change that much at first, but then you just configure your window manager accordingly. If you look at your fonts applet or open a doc/page you can see the difference immediately.
