I've been tweaking Xubuntu on my Macbook Pro 15" Retina display and now only two things remain:
- The Window Buttons in the panel are too narrow, there seems to be a hardcoded maximum? Also if I increase the panel size to 50 or more then that just add rows instead of increasing the buttons' height.
- The icons in the indicator plugin are too small. They seem to stop growing after panel size 49 even though they are scalable vector graphics. And also it just adds rows when setting a higher size for the panel.
Anyway I thought I'd check if I'm missing some setting before filing a feat. req. / bug report.
So far I've done the following:
- Settings / Appeareance / Fonts / Custom DPI 220
- In Firefox about:config I've set "layout.css.devPixelsPerPx" to "2" (NOTE: This seems to work just like in OS X, the text is still rendered at the high resolution, but pages' layout is scaled so that everything looks OK).
- Cursor size max
- Panel size 49.
I'm quite happy with the current setup, but one can never tweak too much
