I use a High-DPI monitor on my Lenovo Yoga2 Laptop (like a retina display) so I have to change the overall font-scaling.
There are many ways to set the text-scale-factor, for example
dconf-editor, I used
unity-tweak-util, but in the end they seem to set the values in the global configuration:
$ gsettings list-recursively|grep text-scal org.gnome.desktop.interface text-scaling-factor 2.0 com.canonical.Unity.Interface text-scale-factor 2.0
This solves it (for most programs) and everything is in a readeable size.
Now the Problem:
When I boot my PC this setting seems to take effect later than the desktop is booted, cause when I instantly open nautilus when the desktop is up, I still have it all in a tiny font. If I wait some 10 seconds more and start nautilus then, I have it scaled the right way.
I checked right after boot-time, I opened a console and watched the output of
gsettings list-recursively|grep text-scal - the setting is already on 2.0, but everything is still tiny.
How can I achieve one of these solutions?
- change this behaviour and get the font scaled right from the start?
- make the desktop wait for the setting to be active?
- generate a warning that the scaling is not set yet?
