    size can mean different resolution is set. you still didn't answer what happens when you copy and paste the commands you were given.
    Code:
    sudo apt install mesa-utils
    type in your password when asked and then press enter.

    then
    Code:
    glxinfo -B
    then copy the result and paste it back using code tags (the # icon in forums advanced answer)

    i am still not sure what the issue is. you want smaller letters? as soon as we find out the report, we can help. it can be that letters are set too big or that resolution is simply set too small.
    Read the easy to understand, lots of pics Ubuntu manual.
    Do i need antivirus/firewall in linux?
    Disk backup (works on newer PC): Clonezilla
    User friendly full disk backup Redobackup is now back as Rescuezilla

    so this shows us all seems to be installed and working well.

    now for the issue of small icons& text. in system settings (i don't know where exactly this is in Ubuntu since i use Kubuntu) there should be settings for screen. and in there you should be able to set resolution. higher resolution will make everything look smaller and more crisp /clear at the same time.

    Q: what is the maximum resolution your screen supports? what is the maximum shown in the settings? if you screen supports higher resolution than the one available in settings then we have some more work to do.

    then there should also be setting for fonts, where you can set default system font size. so you can increase that to get bigger letters for example.

    more on resolution here: https://help.ubuntu.com/stable/ubunt...lution.html.en
    and for the font size here: https://vitux.com/how-to-change-text-size-in-ubuntu/


    I prefer Kubuntu because all these settings are out in the open and easy to find. or maybe i am just too used to old windows interface.
