Searched the forum and google for a few days trying out various options, nothing working so far. Let's see if anyone here has a tip for me
I'm running Ubuntu Netbook Remix 9.10 (latest) on Compaq Mini 702EA (1024x600). The text is very small in Firefox and the rest of the desktop due to the high DPI of the display panel (118dpi).
Therefore I would like to increase the DPI setting, so that text,icons, web pages are rendered larger.
I found this page covering a lot of ideas, none of which work for Ubuntu or firefox
In X the way to increase the DPI seems to be to configure a smaller display resolution in mm than is actually the case. However, this does not work either
Identifier "Configured Monitor"
DisplaySize 163 95 # 160dpi
I did find a control in Ubuntu to make the Remix desktop larger.. however, now writing this I cannot find where it was. Anyone remember?
The only other workaround is to configure Firefox's font size for each charset, Western etc to have a larger min size. This means text is larger, but images are still small, and so pages don't look quite right. Firefox does not allow configuration of the "zoom" at a fixed amount, 130% would probably be enough.
Firefox layout.css.dpi seems mostly broken, it only changes anything if going beyond 192, after which the text is then too large!
