Description betterprogrammerthanyou 2010-09-02 23:40:30 UTC
Hi, seems to ignore the DPI settings I've set up in my xorg.conf. 
xdpyinfo prints the following on my system:
resolution:    88x87 dots per inch
However, if I set the zoom setting to 100% in Writer, an A4 page
is exactly 796 pixels wide. This corresponds to 796px/(210mm/(25.4mm/in)) =
96px/in, which differs substantially from the 88 px/in I was expecting. 
Also, the menu fonts in all applications are bigger than they
ought to be (that is, bigger than in every other application; both Qt and gtk do
it right).
