|I have a 46 inches LCD TV as my monitor. Native resolution is 1920x1080. That means that the DPI is ~ 48. At first I used 96 as DPI in order to make fonts look normal in small sizes, but it made icons huge.
So I decided to fix that: I have set the DPI (48 ) in xorg.conf and KDE understands that fine. Icons look normal now. I have increased font size through kde font settings so they can be readable. (I haven't enabled force fonts dpi)
xdpyinfo | grep dots
resolution: 48x48 dots per inch
cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep DPI
[ 11.183] (**) NVIDIA(0): Option "DPI" "48x48"
[ 11.678] (**) NVIDIA(0): DPI set to (48, 48); computed from "DPI" X config option
But gnome applications look horrible. All fonts are barely readable. See below:
Firefox & Deluge are affected. layout.css.dpi in firefox is 0.
If I set Xft.dpi: 96, gtk apps are ok but KDE apps are affected. (I have set Xft.dpi: 48 but to no avail)
What do I miss How can I increase the default font size for gtk applications?
