Just a quick question...

I got a new 24" hd tv to use as a pc monitor and have windows pre installed.

In the windows 7 display settings {control panel/Display} is a option to make things on the screen appear bigger this works great at high res and I was wondering if any one knew a similar setting or program to get the same effect on Ubuntu.

Don't mind if its for Unity, gnome or KDE etc...

Thanks

in unity

  1. under system preferences (click right top on the wheel)
  2. choose universal access
  3. in the first tab you can alter the text size

I am not sure if everything is correctly named because i use the dutch translation but normaly you should get there

The same goes for any desktop environment, up the res then increase the font size. –  Uri Herrera Jul 3 '12 at 18:29
