I swapped a ~2660x~1900 monitor for a 4k monitor and now my fonts are really small and I can't seem to get my system fonts to increase.

awesome window manager: 3.5
xorg-server: 1.18

.xinitrc:
exec ck-launch-session dbus-launch --sh-syntax --exit-with-session awesome


$ sudo eselect fontconfig list
