[SOLVED] 305 dpi fontsize? HUGE cannot setup mythtv [SOLVED]
« on: March 19, 2008, 05:16:52 pm »
Hello,

i am testing the latest beta and after a small glitch i was able to put my resolution to 1920x1080p
but now when i start mythtv-setup the fonts are HUGE so HUGE i cannot setup my mce 150 card!

I have tried setting the actual display size in the monitor section from xorg.conf to 100 dpi but nothing changes when lmce starts X

when i start X by hand from the commandline the fonts are small so i guess lmce does something with the dpi size!

Can someone point me into the right direction? Where do i look!


With kind regards

William van de Velde

Check /var/log/Xorg.0.log to see if that has any clues to what the actual problem is.

zaerc,

do you think it would be helpful if we had something in the wiki, that gave an idea of where to check logs for which problem. mythtv trouble check these logs here....video problem check these logs. i see you answer the same questions a lot and thought maybe (for the people that search), it might help them find which logs to look up without having to ask. then they if they need more help they can post their logs with their questions.

Well problem solved!!

It was in the xorg.0.log

But i guess when i start X the second time my tv is differently read using EDID (i am using that becuese then it can find the right resolution)

Well i saw that it also used the dpi settings from the option "UseEdidDpi" probably because i enabled the UseEDID option so i disabled the option like:

Option "UseEdidDpi" "false"

and rebooted

Now i have normal fonts in kde!!! resolution according xdpyinfo is now: 121x109 and before i turned that option off it told me 305x305


Thanx zaerc!!

With kind regards
