After doing the apt-get update/upgrade for the latest 8.10 packages, I've lost the settings that set my dpi for my 40" LCD to larger fonts. When I reboot, the 'Loading LinuxMCE' messages are all extremely small, and my desktop and web browser fonts unreadable.
The fix for this in the past was to edit /usr/pluto/bin/Start_X_Wrapper.sh and add -dpi 96 to the end of the xinit line. Unfortunately, if I try that now, X doesn't start up. The MD will display the start up commands such as stopping and starting Samba daemons, and then it just stays at a command prompt screen displaying messages, but X never starts. I also tried to add a dpi command to xorg.conf under monitor (dpi 96 x 96), but I get the same results. Seems X doesn't like the dpi setting anymore.
