    Change of DPI


    I have a very poor eyesight. That's why I always change the screen DPI to 150% (in Windows). Does anybody know how to do that in Linux. I could not find that yet in any of the settings.

    I use Zorin which I guess is the same as Ubuntu for the settings.

    Hello

    Don't know what a zorin is, but for the monitor I'm on at the moment, the proper DPI is 94x94, so I set my system to use that in the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file by adding the following line to the "Monitor" section:

    Code:
    Option         "DPI" "94x94"
    If you don't have an xorg.conf file, you can create one.

    Thanks OZ. I will try that.

    Zorin is the nicest Ubuntu based distro for a Windows person. I love it. They don't let me post links yet. But if you Google "Zorin", it shows up.

    And if you paste that into your browser, you'll see how excited I am.
