    How to enlarge fonts in Wine?


    When I run application in Wine fonts are too small. The same application on Windows have fonts ok. However I use "120DPI" big fonts in Windows. Screen resolution is the same 1024x768. Please give me details how to make fonts bigger in Wine. I am a beginner in wine.
    Wine 0.9.31 compiled from source. Suse 10.2 64.

    I found on Internet for older versions of Wine : to enter into config file:
    In section [fonts]: "Resolution" = "96"
    However I can't try out setting it to "120", because there is apparently other way of cofiguration in wine 0.9.31.
    In addition I had no fonts after installing wine; I "cabextracted" them from packages here:
    http://sourceforge.net/project/showf...ease_id=105355
    and copied into ~/.wine/Windows/fonts.

    Thanks for help!

    Ok. I have managed to get fonts working OK. According to
    http://wiki.winehq.org/UsefulRegistryKeys
    I changed LogPixels to 120.
    Also added
    "ClientSideAntiAliasWithCore"="N"
    "ClientSideAntiAliasWithRender"="N"
    to user.reg - section [Software\\Wine\\X11 Driver]
    And (don't know if it is necessary) added:
    "Resolution"="120"
    into system.reg, section [System\\CurrentControlSet\\Hardware Profiles\\Current\\Software\\Fonts] 117209
