I have two displays each running an X session.
I adjusted the Window Manager and Appearance Font to my liking on my primary display. How do I adjust the Font settings on my second display?
Thanks for any help!
I noticed that the second display was defaulting to a DPI of 96. I changed this to match the primary display with a default DPI of 143. It looks much better. I guess this is an X, video driver, or display issue. Case closed.
I can now see that the display information is being correctly read by the video driver and handed to X.
xdpyinfo | grep -B2 resolution screen #0: dimensions: 1920x1080 pixels (341x191 millimeters) resolution: 143x144 dots per inch -- screen #1: dimensions: 1920x1080 pixels (483x272 millimeters) resolution: 101x101 dots per inch
The question is: How do I get the XFCE Desktop to display at the correct DPI? If I set the DPI via the Appearance -> Fonts window, then it sets the same DPI for each desktop. I want to either have XFCE pick up the correct DPI from X, or to set in manually in the xfce config files. How do I do this?
Something like this would be nice:
xfconf-query -c xfce4-desktop -p /screen0/monitor0/DPI -s 143 xfconf-query -c xfce4-desktop -p /screen1/monitor0/DPI -s 101 - or - xfconf-query -c xsettings -p /Xft/Session0/DPI -s 143 xfconf-query -c xsettings -p /Xft/Session1/DPI -s 101
