    Re: Support for new release (20.04 LTS) on a Dell notebook?

    Just saw this announcement: https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?pa...20.04-Shipping
    As of today, the Dell XPS 13 Developer Edition with 10th Gen Intel Core CPU is now offering a pre-install with 20.04 LTS rather than the two-year-old Ubuntu 18.04 LTS.

    Re: Support for new release (20.04 LTS) on a Dell notebook?

    I will be purchasing a Dell XPS 13 9300 with Ubuntu 20.04 preinstalled. I selected the 3840 × 2400 (WQUXGA) display as well. Just curious if anyone has used terminal at that small of a resolution?

    Shouldn't matter. Just set the font size as you like. That's been possible at least 30 yrs.

    Thanks for the reply! Yeah, you're probably right though I am accustomed to a 1920x1080 screen and not a 3840x2400 screen.

    Probably? <rbg> You can control the font, font size, foreground and background colors for xterms.
    Code:
    uxterm -sb -fs 18 -bg black -fg yellow -fa 'Monospace' -u8  &
    You can change the font size while running an xterm or uxterm using the ... let me try it ... <cnt>+right mouse button. Hold the right button down until the menu is displayed. The size options are relative to the size specified when running. Xterms have been around at least 30 yrs. If a "modern" terminal doesn't support it, get a better terminal. Seriously.

    I appreciate the assistance; however, I will have to wait until the delivery of my XPS 9300 to actually try your suggestion. Supposedly my XPS 9300 will arrive on August 5th which is one day before 20.04.1 is scheduled to be released. What a coincidence but yeah, 1 month of waiting.

    Uh ... this is a general command that should work on any Unix system with a GUI. See the "18"? That's the font size. Play with it on your current workstation.

    I'm using Ubuntu 20.04 and 20.10 on a different Dell laptop (I removed Windows) and I see no problems, all hardware is well supported.
