Subject: [gentoo-user] change dpi in xorg
Date: Thu, 28 Jul 2005 17:13:36
1 Hello!
2 I want to know if dynamic changes of dpi are possible in xorg, and if yes how
3 to do it... here is more specific explanation of my problem.
4 Recently i had fun with tv-out, i want to connect tv through radeon 9700 and
5 fglrx driver, it worked, better or worse. But i found that when i change
6 resolution, which is needed in my situation (i use 1280x1024 on crt monitor,
7 and tv works on 1024x768 maximal resolution), dpi changes too, fonts are
8 smaller, and unreadable, 1024x768 isn't very bad but using this may be
9 hard... Also when i add second monitor to x dpi settings changes if i don't
10 specify my own setting. I never used smaller resolutions than my default so i
11 don't even notice this problem earlier. So there is my question if i can
12 change dpi dynamically, i can do it when starting x, with kdm kdmrc file (kde
13 3.4.1 version) or DisplaySize section in xorg.conf but this works in "static"
14 way, once for one resolution, if i use RandR to change resolution dpi setting
15 will be recalculated.
