I asked about fixing DPI in 12.04.
The 14.04 release notes list "Support for High-DPI screens and desktop scaling."
Post upgrade, it seems that nothing has changed. Similar symptoms from my previous post persist:
- The 1" square here is closer to 1/2"
- Despite the line
xserver-command=X -dpi 170in
/etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf, xdpyinfo reports 96x96 dpi
I did find that I was able to use the "Scale for menu and title bars" slider in System Settings>Displays to fix title bar text size instead of setting
org.gnome.desktop.interface text-scaling-factor as described here.
The last post also mentions that in Gnome 3, DPI is hard coded to 96. Is this a limitation in 14.04? (I am somewhat ignorant to the distinction between Gnome and Unity) Can I do anything to properly set my DPI?
