    Hi,

    You can do this from System Settings - Universal Access - Text Size

    Well you can do this in Ubunto with Unity.

    I can't find that in Lubuntu.

    Literally Lubuntu is using LXDE and I can't see a way to set the operating system's text size of the menus etc (DPI) a bigger value.

    In Ubuntu its easily done through Universal Access. I don't seem to find the same option in Lubuntu.

    I just found this

    Maybe the gnome-tweak-tool may help

    Go to Preferences->Customize Look and Feel and then change your default font to whatever you want it to be.

    If you have an Nvidia video card, you should have the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf. In the Device section of this file, you can add the two Option lines to suit your need:

    Code:
    Section "Device"
        Identifier     "Device0"
        Driver         "nvidia"
        VendorName     "NVIDIA Corporation"
        Option       "UseEDIDDpi" "False" #override the auto dpi
        Option         "DPI" "95 x 96" #change this to your liking
    EndSection
    Hope this helps. I found the info after an extensive search.

    First, go to Preferences/Customize Look & Feel (LXAppearance) and be sure the boxes labeled hinting and antialising are checked. Other font adjustments can be made there as well as in Preferences/Openbox Configuration.

    Re: How to increase DPI?

    I have the same problem. I know it was possible to change the DPI in 11.10.
    Not sure why they changed this. I will come back hopefully with an answer.
    I am just surprised that some people replied without understanding the question.
    And none of the answers really provide a solution.
